Art to Art

This week I’m featuring another one of the micro-enterprises available to the residents at Community First! Village.

The arthouse is a very large room with plenty of tables, chairs, and art supplies. It includes a separate room with a potter’s wheel for making pottery and another one for the kiln. It is open 6 days a week for the residents to come and create art. One of the artist featured in this vignette is Penney Hunt, along with some of her artwork. A painting of hers is the center piece of the poster for our film.

As with several of the other micro-enterprises, the artists are able to sell their creations in the Community Market. Obviously the proceeds help generate an income, but it also gives the residents a creative outlet and a sense of accomplishment which you can’t put a price on.

The beautiful note cards shown in this video are our gift to you when you contribute to our documentary efforts through our Kickstarter at several different donation levels
starting at only $20!
