Arts at the Aviary

Listen. Create. Share.

Last night's creation

Perspective.  We all have it. Everyone’s is a little different. Sharing it requires a safe place.  That’s what we are setting out to foster – a safe, supportive environment for the sharing of our arts.

No judgment.  Just share. And be.

There were six of us last night. After some introductions and discussion of “what inspires us” as artists, we got to experience some art.

Deep in thought, enjoying newly recorded music by Ry Edwards

Technology.  Oh how you have influenced the performing arts.

Thank you so much to Ry Edwards for sharing his music with us. Philosophizing about the arts is fabulous, but actually experiencing them together is what we are also aiming for. Your music is touching, Ry – fresh, thoughtful, and unique. We wish you great success with your recording ventures!

Our "guest book"

Thank you for this week’s installment on our pictoral guest book. Be sure to leave your mark when you visit.

“Hmmm…what shall we do with this Play Doh??”

Nathan being playfully creative

Play Doh community.  I think it looks like something from Dr. Seuss!  Ha, I just noticed the little bird on the yello bridge – nice touch.  Oh excuse me, Nathan just informed me that at is called a “budgely”…according to Play Doh bird artist Bethany Jackson.

When was the last time you played with Play Doh?  Go listen to some new music. If you don’t know where to start, check out Ry’s site.

Whatever you do, make sure you create something beautiful this week.  We did.

Next week we will be celebrating art at a special arts program at Redeemer Covenant Church. 6:30 – 8:00. Join us.

  1. How fun and creative is this?! Naomi, your water color painting and corresponding picture are in my living room. It’s good to see you still making time and finding creative ways to be creative — and sharing it. Love ya!

    • It is, to be precise, very fun and creative :). I’m so glad you still enjoy the painting – I have such fond memories of doing it. We now have a table up in “mommy’s special room” for the purpose of painting…and doing puzzles, which is what it is currently occupied with. Wish you could join us.
