Live interactive Art: by Ali Sztepa.
One thing about art that irks me is that it is viewed as elitist. It instills fear in people, they think they can't make art. For Big Art Party I will bring all sorts of supplies for making drawings, paintings and collages. Everyone will be free to add their piece to a large canvas producing a group art piece that is at once disjointed and cohesive. To break down barriers to creation is what I hope to do. Everyone's an artist, creation is unlimited, art has the power to heal.

The group art opportunity drew many people. It'd be interesting to see how this endeavour turned out.
