We had another great Star Wars preview show this year. Several people told me that the art has stepped up a notch since last year. As the organizer, I personally want to thank everyone that submitted art and came out to see the show. And maybe drank some PBR and ate some cookies. I am also really greatful to DeskHub who was kind enough to let us take over their space for a few hours for a pop up. We had a lot of fun and hope to continue to do shows like this in the future.
On the same night as the AJFF Art Party, a few other FAFATL artists had a pop up shop. The artists involved in this pop up were: Oohoohaah, The Factory Press, ClunkyRobot & Noosh Studios. I stopped by for a few minutes to chat and take some pictures. You can see what you missed below. If you see anything you like, make sure you contact the artist.
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.

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).
I’ve found a few more classes for artists around Atlanta. If you missed the first round up of classes, you can check that out here . If none of those classes struck your fancy, you might find some you like after the jump.
After not having any Calls for Artists for October, I have a few to share with you for November & December. One of them is a HUGE opportunity.
As a side note, I think some people were going to repaint the Krog Tunnel. If you choose to partake in that, please note that it may or may not be legal to paint. Also, please respect street art etiquette.
And now back to regularly scheduled Calls For Artists…
You already know how to find FAFATL on Twitter and Instagram, right? If you don’t, just search for #FAFATL . In case you aren’t into 140 character posts or pictures with filters, you can also check out the FAFATL community on Facebook.
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.
