I'm Mindy Flexer, and I created this school in my loft to give all kinds of people of all ages a place to come together and make art. As a working artist in Germantown, I'm delighted to be able to invite people into my studio to share the journey with me!
My studio is an inclusive place where every person is cherished and nurtured. It is a base camp: a safe home, beautiful and meaningful in itself, from which to launch other expeditions. Within and beyond the studio, it is good to have big dreams and to take on big challenges: creating art, creating community, and creating a more just world together.
JOIN US FOR WINTER BREAK ART CAMP, STARTING NEXT WEEK!
Thursday, December 21, Friday, December 22, Tuesday, December 26, and Tuesday, January 30, 9am to 3pm, with full-time, part-time, morning, and afternoon options-- mix and match to suit your schedule!
THANKS FOR ANOTHER GREAT MAKE-IN FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE, EVERYONE! The pennies we all made together added so much to the December 7 Climate Change Action.
There was a big turn-out of many different kinds of people, and everyone was excited! This campaign is creating a broad vision of energy justice, while sustaining the push for a specific change that will have a big impact: demanding that PECO convert to 20% local solar by 2025. Go clean energy, new jobs in North Philly, and Climate Justice! Go artists! Stay tuned for another Make-In in the new year, for another action in March.
