Tuesdays on Tumamoc

LAST TUESDAY we had our first weekday art session on Tumamoc. Eleven people attended, including Carina Johnson from UA Communications, who was filming and interviewing us for a series of short videos she wants to do for UA News about the artists working on Tumamoc.

The consensus is to continue meeting like this every Tuesday afternoon from 1:30 pm to sundown. Meredith Milstead will be the host and meet people at the Tumamoc gate to carpool up at 1:30 pm every Tuesday.

Everyone has been working independently, but Meredith is available for teaching advice, as are the other artists, each with their point of view. There are no qualifications to come up except an intention to explore Tumamoc with art and writing materials–beginners as well as professionals are welcome. If there is time and inclination, we’ll meet to look at each others work before going back down the Hill to the crazy world below.

See you next Tuesday, January 28. I’ll send a reminder to all on the tinyletter mailing list (See Tumamoc Sketching Group sign-up in the sidebar to the right.) . We are also planning to have Tumamoc open for artists on Sunday afternoons, with one of them being a monthly Tumamoc Cafe, where one person will show some of their work and talk about it in a little more detail. This Spring schedule will be revised as the afternoons get warmer towards April or May.

That’s almost everybody afterwards in the Desert Lab parking lot. Don’t they look happy?
