Several years ago we began a family tradition of creating art together.  For over a decade we had taken classes individually at both Talking Colors and Rush In Art Academy.  Then five winters ago, the four of us took a painting class all together for the first time with Natalyia at Rush In Art.  We had so much fun we took another class the next winter.  The following winter when Natalyia went on vacation, we decided we would continue the tradition at home.  At first we all painted a similar theme, then different themes and this year we’ve mixed textiles and paper folding along side the painting.

 

In honor of the Women’s March on Washington on January 21st in Washington D.C., we gathered with dear friends to knit warm woolly pink hats which are part of the Pussy Hat Project. Local yarn shop Spun is hosting it’s second knit-in on Sunday, January 15th to finish off the hats and send them to Washington DC.  There are Sister Marches all around the USA and the World!  Locally in Ann Arbor the Women’s March will be held downtown – January 21, 2017 • 2:00 PM.  I plan to participate – where will you march?
