For the 3rd installment of Classes for Artists, I’d like to do a special focus on the Atlanta Printmakers Studio. You may or may not be aware of the non-profit that focuses on printmaking. They offer studio space and equipment for artist renters, artist shows and of course, classes. Several FAFATL artists are members and two of them are teaching classes that start very soon. Info about the classes after the jump.

In Case You Missed It – FAFATL Christmas Tree & Festivus Pole

One of the things the FAFATL community has done for the last few years is decorating a Christmas tree with Free Art Ornaments. Two years ago, we decorated a tree in Grant Park and last year it was a tree in Springvale Park (near L5P in Inman Park). We’ve had a lot of fun making the ornaments to share with the community. And a nice break from the fridge magnets that usually go out for Free Art Friday (personally guilty of this).

The fine folks at Maker Faire Atlanta had contacted us to see if some of the FAFATL artists wanted to be involved in one of their events. Several of the FAFATLers had a booth at the Maker Faire in 2012, so the organization was already familiar with who we are and what we do.

In Case You Missed It: 1000 drawings by doodleslice



On the same day as the WeLoveFAFATL show (July 12,2014), there was an opening for Doodleslice‘s solo show at Hodgepodge Coffee. This FAFATL artist’s show consists of 1000 of drawings (doodles).
