In case you haven't been able to tell, we're more than just a little art supply shop. We're people that care. A lot. About a lot of different stuff. Mostly we just want to make the world a better place by being most fully our best selves. And the way we do that at the Stick is through art. And people. We hope that by bringing art and people together and pushing that art and those people to say something and to be something that we will all grow stronger as individuals and as communities.
Community art is art made by people. Lots of people. Anyone in the community that wants to participate. Big people, little people, people that can see, people that can't. People that are artistic, people that aren't. But that's not the point. The purpose of community art, as we see it, is to involve a broad family of people in the creative process. And we do that with broken tile and cut glass and lots of shiny gems. And big hearts. Yeah, that's it. Big hearts. And all these people, together, create. And, with a little guidance from us and a whole lotta magic, something beautiful materializes - it often amazes us. So many hands and fingers and eyes and stories are embedded in the community mosaics that you'll see here. Again and again, we've been part of the magic that happens when hands are busy and hearts are free. So, stand back, throw your eyes out of focus a bit, and enjoy.
