Your Creativity – Our Supplies!

Archive for October, 2014

what are your thoughts…

on this year’s Open Studios Art Tour?  On past Tours?

I’m reaching out to those of you who receive our blog ask you for feedback, on behalf of ARTS Obispo.  Am sitting down with Lori from AO to discuss the complaints that I’ve heard from some participants.  If you participated in the tour, and did NOT respond to the AO survey, are you willing to share where you feel there is room for improvement? 

If you’re satisfied with the tour, you don’t need to respond – just looking for constructive criticism. 

If you didn’t do the tour this year because in the past you weren’t happy with the results, can you share why?

If you wish to remain anonymous, I will certainly respect your wishes.  If so, please mention your town or locale in your criticism, so that area-related issues can be more accurately addressed.

Thanks!

“I want my art to convey the mystery and sensuality of woman. To do this I must create and destroy the image (often again and again) until it grabs me.”

-Enjoy, Ellen Jewett
