PHAPulous PHun on the Farm

Oh the fun we had, Saturday afternoon. The Pointy Hat ART Posse threw its first annual (we hope!) PHAP Farm in LA (Leduc, Alberta). Twenty-some artists, wannabe artists and newbie artists gathered at Arlene's house to play. After signing a "Permission to make Mistakes" (or is it Misteaks?), everyone set out for the grand adventure of an afternoon of creative PHun.

Some folks created ATC masterpieces, some bound super unique ART journals, others sketched in the flower garden, while a few fashioned pointy hats, and still others altered clothing.

Faux Gogh chair was unveiled for the first time, showing the final panel which is an impressionist portrait of Vincent Van Gogh.

Some people created and bound ART journals, others made Artist Trading Cards, sketched in the flower garden, fashioned pointy hats, and others created one-of-a-kind couture!

Everyone generously shared their yummy picnic-y food with each other which we nibbled on throughout the afternoon, and absolutely no one left hungry. Thankfully, the weather also cooperated splendidly, so we were able do all the activities outside in the sunshine. By the end of the day, everyone took home at least one finished art project (or two), and most were fortunate enough to snag a precious door prize as well. Now, it's only 364 more days until PHAP Farm 2009!

What a fabulous (or should I say phabulous!!!) party!!! Looks like lots of fun was had by all AND some beautiful art created.

I absolutely love your Faux Gogh chair, where did you get the inspiration to that? It looks amazing. So glad I popped by to visit (via Arlene's blog).
