How it Started
MakeSpace is the home for Spark!, A free Community Art Project that was created to bring artists together and to inspire creativity.
The original idea for Spark! was that a local painter would pair with a local photographer. The photographer would choose one of their photos for the painter to interpret, in their own style. With the work complete, the group would come together to share the outcome and experience, followed by a viewing by family and friends.
Since the first Spark! The group has grown, eight various challenges have been completed and the creativity has exploded! Recently the group finished a challenge that required each attendee to choose a famous piece of art, in any medium and create their own piece, inspired by this art. Artists even turned paintings into sculptures, and sculptures into images!
In turn, Spark! inspired MakeSpace and we are forever grateful for the energy and enthusiasm that each person brings to our art community!
