...most of my paint got frozen in our recent Siberian episode,
so if you have any water based paints you can bring that would be very kind...


To see what we got up to in the last four years:
http://www.kewolve.com/CommunityArtsArchives.html
This year will be the fifth year of a world event that has had over 80,000 artists and participants connecting their activities through the internet.

 What I will direct/organize is to supply a whole bunch of small jig-saw shaped panels that were part of an old TV series where I was the lead artist.
 
Being it is so close to Valentines Day, that will be the theme if any is apparent, but the public are invited to paint what ever they want, as long as it is not focused on hate, bigotry, or social/political fanaticism...if you want that,  find your own wall.

Josh the owner and Chef at THE HOLLAR  has been kind enough to donate the space to do this event, so also if you can take a little attention to dripping paint, etc., that would be appreciated

WORLD COMMUNITY ARTS DAY 2008

For the first year and to get things started we [Andrew Crummy] started by asking those who were connected with the Craigmillar Festival Society as we know this group of friends is worldwide, in particular to remember a remarkable man Reg Bolton who died in 2006. The first two people to reply and helped to get it all started were Kevin Ryan, Director - Charnwood Artsand Ken Wolverton. Of course Community Arts is much bigger than this, but others did come and join the party.

History of Community Arts

Community Art is an important global movement, with a complex and long history. Thousands of groups and individuals are part of this story that is rich and very diverse. Many can be found on Communityarts.net. Here are a few to get you started.
