PAINTS 2012 – it’s for the birds

   If you don’t know what PAINTS is – you are missing out on one of the great art promoting groups in our area. It stands for: Promote Art IN The Schools. All year, a dedicated group of volunteers gather art and all sorts of package trips and services to auction off at a fund-raising gala auction on Memorial Day weekend. Many local artists create birdhouses out of all sorts of materials: guitars, wood, metal – this year there was a 12 foot tall pencil!  This year, we of course made one out of frames – it was fun and a great challenge!

     

  Micah & Jennifer built sides and a roof out of frames filled with textured boards and even installed a hinge so it can be used as a storage box. We decided it would be a birdie death trap, and not to be used as a real bird house!

        

  Elida was inspired by an abundance of collected materials to build one also – from a cigar box and a crazy twisted piece of wood – take a look:

          

  Pretty fabulous! And now we can’t stop looking at all kinds of materials and thinking, ‘Hey, we could make that into a bird house!’ We’re busily planning for next year…. join us!


When you have special art, you need a special frame.

We have a client with a watercolor painting that he never quite knew what to do with, so it sat in a drawer for years. He brought it in for a creative solution, and we knew it needed a frame with a door to afford access to the clever workings of the art.
