It’s a drop in community art room where folks can try a plethora of mediums and engage in several creative experiences for a modest donation of $5.00. That takes care of the paint, or glue, or canvas, or air dry clay, or beads, or………well you get the picture. We call these our “consumables”. And this gal thinks that’s seriously a cheap date no matter where you live
Springfield Art Gym – what is it?
Published by Mona Frye
Not quite a Vermont native, I moved here in 1987 and immediately fell in love with the beauty of the landscape; the wholesomeness of the people. Vermont artists in particular are honored for their craft; appreciated for the vision. Today, that vision has brought me to a passion for community through art projects that benefit all. I LOVE seeing small children and their parents working side by side with seasoned artists and senior citizens. There are no limits to who can participate - I've worked with former inmates yet under supervision of the Dept of Corrections, to home school networks of intuitive souls with a GREAT sense of humor! Currently, in collaboration with Springfield on the Move, and Springfield Restorative Justice Center, and several members of the community, our project is to collaborate with fellow artists of all ability levels, and create a welcoming space right in downtown Springfield, where anyone can drop in and CREATE! Either guided, or working independently, our doors will be open to grow in the arts. This community art room is called "SPRINGFIELD ART GYM: where people are welcome to exercise their creativity!" I adore making Springfield more beautiful, and bringing out the beautiful artist in everyone. Please don't be shy in contacting me. You can find me on facebook as well. View all posts by Mona Frye
