Photos from July ArtWalk, with Painting Challenge and the Hive Pop-Up Gallery!

We had an incredible night at the studio during ArtWalk!

The courtyard complex we're part of, The Hive, was closed to traffic and taken over by art, music (a DJ operating out of a VW bus), food trucks, a beer tent, and people hanging out having a blast! Our studio, plus Red Pearl Yoga, Beer Co, Native Realty and Glitch Bar were all offering fun activities and services.

Our studio arranged for artists to show their work at a Pop-Up Gallery. They had a great time and sold some pieces!

In the studio, guests had a lot of fun painting freestyle as well as taking the Painting Challenge! (fourth photo in this group by Samiyyah Black).

Guests signed and wrote inspirational messages on this month's banner, which says "Create Boldly!". It was donated by Doubletime Digital, and the markers were donated by Blick Art Supplies. Then we hung it up on the fence outside for the neighborhood to enjoy. (First two photos by Samiyyah Black).
