Do any of these statements apply to you?
If you want to be more artful this year, join The 52 Project!
The 52 Project, a part of RAM's Riverside Art Make, is about getting a group of creative people together to find inspiration and motivation from one another while working on a 52-week, self-directed art journaling project. The goal is to help you develop the habit of capturing your ideas and being more artful on a regular basis.
How Does The 52 Project Work?
Five group meetings are included in the base price. 10 workshops/demos offered for an additional price. A dedicated Facebook page will be available for participants for ongoing motivation. When offered, participants will receive 10% off RAM art classes.
A 52-week, self-directed art journaling adventure. The journal you keep can be any style, size, and be kept daily, weekly, or monthly. What we ask is that you make this journal an "EVERYTHING BOOK" capturing all of your creative ideas as if it were a scrapbook, sketchbook, daily planner, diary, and journal.
For those of you that feel a creative idea developing along the way, e.g., a short story, dance piece, one-act play, art exhibit, etc., we will help you learn (at the July meeting) how to write an exhibit/project proposal to submit to the museum. The museum will jury the proposals and select a variety of projects for 4-day exhibitions/performances to be held in 2018.
(You do not need to decide if you want to participate in Option 2 until the July meeting. It has no additional cost.)
Why Did We Choose Art Journaling?
We selected art journaling because it is a user-friendly way to capture your creative ideas and be artful at the same time. Your art journal will become a mixed-media wonderland by painting, drawing, lettering, etc., using acrylics, watercolors, colored pencils, markers, and ball-point pens, and cutting, pasting, taping, and stapling whatever catches your eye! THERE ARE NO RULES; THERE ARE NO MISTAKES! And you can journal any time, any where.
Who Should Apply?

Singers, Songwriters, Painters, Poets, Playwrights, Printmakers, Dancers, Actors, Photographers, Writers, Sculptors, Foodies, Woodworkers, Textile artists, Jewelry makers, Ceramists, Illustrators, Mixed-media artists, Graphic designers, Filmmakers, Bookmakers, Fashion designers, etc.
