So We will be meeting this Wednesday, for our last family night meeting of the semester, HOWEVER (and this is the FIRST BIG ASK), we need all art hands on deck to help move the supplies from the Studio to the Attic. This is the first step in our big studio remodel, and needs being done. This is light work,
Just come to Family Dinner night at 5:30 pm Wednesday, and then meet at studio at 6:30 to move paints and brushes and so forth to the attic.
SECOND BIG ASK:
Folks, I need artists willing to be artists-for-others at our tent for the Violet Crown Festival.
It is THIS SATURDAY. MAY 4th. Park across from Hope Chapel. 9am-5pm. (2 1/2 hour shifts preferred but you do what you can)
What does that mean? It means you sit in the tent, being willing to write/draw/paint on the spot, praying on the spot, or displaying artwork. It means being prepared to discuss art and faith on the spot.
There will be NO ABSOLUTELY NO selling of art at this event.
The Wednesday Night Arts Group is meeting in the studio this week, 04/24. Dinner in Family Room at Hope Chapel @ 5:30 P.M., Group time @ 6:30 P.M.
HopeArts NEEDS VOLUNTEERS for the HopeArts Booth @ Violet Crown Festival, May 4th in the Brentwood Park -- next to Brentwood Elementary and across the street from Hope Chapel. Contact Art Ministry Director for more information, or / and watch the HopeArts Blog. The current plan is display(only, not sell) our art, to perform spontaneous pieces when requested, and to "Pray Art" over all who come by. A mash-up between the open house ministry presentation and what I call an "Art-Bless(ing) of others.
Lastly, and since there will be no Art Salon until June, I would encourage all artists / performers to sign-up for the May Gifts Night (hosted by Hope Chapel as part of its Community Life Ministry, and not a HopeArts event). Details can be found in the Community Updates section of Hope.Org.
This week of Holy Week we are NOT meeting on Wednesday Night. There is however a Good Friday service at Hope at 7PM.
Regular Wednesday Night meetings will resume on the 24th.
We are having Family Night Studio Group, dinner at 5:30-5:16 P.M. in the Family Room at Hope Chapel, and then on to the studio space for our open creation / group time. Bring some liturgy and a piece of art (yours or a classic master's) to share with the group, and be ready to pray (for revival in our city) before we begin our discussion / creation time.
There are no HopeArts Events planned until June, though the Hope Chapel Family is having its May Gifts Night, and I strongly strongly strongly urge all performance-based artists (eg slam poets, musicians, thespians, dancers) to sign-up for a slot -- it blesses in significant ways to be a part of this event.
Likewise, April 19th is Good Friday, and personally speaking, the Good Friday service is an incredible intersection of the existential and artistic within the life of faith, the narratives of which stir in me worship. I encourage us to attend, but sign up for childcare through the Children's Ministry page soon.
