Reconnected with a local bead artist, Sharon Barrie, whom I had met a long time ago and who sold me one of my favorite silver necklaces. Today we spent hours together talking about our businesses, our families and how much we have in common. She and I are both former teachers. I loved the way she described FLOOF Collage pARTy! the moment she walked in to the studio for the first time: “Destination Imagination”!
As a Mom and as a teacher, she created two special places and spaces for her kids. In the classroom she called her art corner “The Invention Center”. At home, she had a “Bored Box” for her two sons.
FCp! fits all those descriptors – its a treasure trove of bins containing found objects that inspire. Sculptures of any size or shape can be put together and might even be kinetic. And certainly, when there’s a day off of school and the kids are clamoring for something to do, the whole studio is a “Bored Box”.
