WEEKLY ONLINE CREATIVE PLAYTIMES

 

Playtime 

Whether we're hanging out creating ATC's for our monthly trade or learning how to sew a book, art isn't all we're making!

We're making lasting friendships. 💕

We love sharing our favourite movies and books (especially art books) and quite often have guest appearances from our pets. 😀 


These creative get-togethers are filled with inspiring insights, ideas and FUN.
We can always count on these times to get creative!
(If you can't make a PLAYTIME, you can always watch the replay.)

Oh, and our Café Artsy Private Facebook Group is always active too!

“I love Holly Dean’s inspiring tone and tempo, both professional and personal. Her passion for art keeps me challenged yet feeling free to explore new ideas and new tools in a positive group environment. Now starting my fourth year of living 'an artsy life', I find Holly shares her expertise in a generous, engaging way that draws me in and makes me feel supported. Whether it’s mixed media, bookmaking, or incorporating my love of stitching into something new, Cafe Artsy keeps me focused on creating.”

“Café Artsy is a magical space of whimsy and artsy play where artist-members are uniformly supportive and positive. It's an extremely special, fun space of learning and knowledge-sharing that’s quite unknown to the dark presence of negativity! Particularly during These Covid Times, artist Holly Dean’s sharing ways have kept my creativity alive and (very) active. I’ve tested new techniques, received positive feedback and critiques, and am growing and stretching my capabilities.
I recommend Café Artsy to any level of artist because here there be dragons…Here’s where magic and irrepressible creative sparks are fanned and welcomed.”

“I enjoy the Café Artsy courses and Holly's easy going way of teaching and demonstration. I love the monthly ATC trade that we do in the group - it keeps me motivated to explore new avenues of creativity.
Being a member of the group keeps me engaged in my art practice, and connected to other artists.
Weekly playtimes inspire me to try new things; I love seeing what everyone is working on and discussing different tools, mediums and techniques with the group.
Being part of a small community of artists allows you to really get to know each other, to support one another, and to learn from each other.”

“The ideas and prompts on the Café Artsy site give me such rich material to check out. The videos are so well presented and the content ranges from colour work to making a journal. Seeing others' work posted on the Café Artsy site and hearing about others creative projects keeps me inspired.
I am making art way more than I used to. The ATC exchange is such a wonderful thing to be involved in with a creative and thoughtful and generous group. Just LOVE receiving my ATCs in the mail and so enjoy making them for others.
Holly is the most inspiring, generous and fun art leader I have ever had. Holly has such an inspiring way of working with anyone that crosses her path. She is only positive even when a participant may be discouraged, Holly always finds a way to uplift and inspire.”
