Before I Die...

How neat is this place? This past weekend, the Lillstreet Art Center hosted an open house for anyone in the area. The day was filled with free classes and demos of all the different types of art they offer. With three floors of classrooms, a shop, and a pie cafe, I don't know a better way I could have spent my day. I took the screenprinting and pottery classes, which happened to be extremely entertaining. I have a few more pictures of the classes to upload, but they will be up soon. One of my favorite things at the gallery was the Before I Die chalkboard wall on the outside of the building. There were pieces of chalk waiting for anyone who wanted to add to the board. I thought it was a really neat way to get a bunch of ideas together, and it really made me want a chalkboard wall. I wrote that I wanted to travel the world. What do you want to do before you die?
Until next time, Mandy


  1. You visit the neatest places! I am so jealous. I live in Illinois too but haven't been to any of these places *sigh. A screen printing class sounds wonderful :] I want to live abroad before I die.

  2. What could be a better combination than art classes and pie?

  3. That place seems so fun! Traveling the world would probably be what I wrote, too.
