POP ART BY A NUN
Luann, creative mentor and former board member, shared this in the last open studio:
“Creativity belongs to the artist in each of us.
To create means to relate.
The root meaning of the word art is ‘to fit together’
and we all do this every day.
Not all of us are painters but we are all artists.
Each time we fit things together we are creating
– whether it is to make a loaf of bread, a child, a day.”
— Corita Kent
Google celebrates Johannes Gutenberg with a Doodle. I am a big fan. Anyone who likes reading should be. I love books and I love printmaking, so I like Johannes a lot. Learn more about movable type and his creation of the printing press by following the links. His invention was revolutionary, helping the common people become literate and allowing the free flow of ideas.
