I am a large fan of the Off Center Community Arts Project. Here in Albuquerque the group of us have a nonprofit center where local artists can be themselves. You have access to a studio space where you can do your work in peace. Anyone can have a space in the studio. Art is a very broad as well as loose spectrum too! People who paint, sew, create jewelry as well as play an instrument are all at the studio space. I care about the vibe there as well as the peace. I like that I can set up our easel, bring my oils as well as not be distrubed. If I want to talk to local artists like myself, it is consistently okay. I have made quite a few friends through Off Center. I am legitimately big in acquiring donations to keep the place going. Also, I do deliver a painting class every evening at 3 pm as well as all the money goes back into the center. A lot of the local artists will be giving sewing classes, crafts, instrument lessons, you name it. It is important to keep our community going. Not only is encouraging art a fine thing, but having a safe space for young boys. There are young gentlemen that go to Off Center that might not have the best homelife, however here at the studio, they feel safe. Off Center also has been known to draw in tourists as well as help us raise cash. Most people come to NM looking for recreational marijuana. Both of us have tons of dispensaries here. However, travelers soon find our state has a lot more to offer.
