One of the things the FAFATL community has done for the last few years is decorating a Christmas tree with Free Art Ornaments. Two years ago, we decorated a tree in Grant Park and last year it was a tree in Springvale Park (near L5P in Inman Park). We’ve had a lot of fun making the ornaments to share with the community. And a nice break from the fridge magnets that usually go out for Free Art Friday (personally guilty of this).
I’ve found a few more classes for artists around Atlanta. If you missed the first round up of classes, you can check that out here . If none of those classes struck your fancy, you might find some you like after the jump.
After not having any Calls for Artists for October, I have a few to share with you for November & December. One of them is a HUGE opportunity.
As a side note, I think some people were going to repaint the Krog Tunnel. If you choose to partake in that, please note that it may or may not be legal to paint. Also, please respect street art etiquette.
And now back to regularly scheduled Calls For Artists…
You already know how to find FAFATL on Twitter and Instagram, right? If you don’t, just search for #FAFATL . In case you aren’t into 140 character posts or pictures with filters, you can also check out the FAFATL community on Facebook.
The fine folks at Maker Faire Atlanta had contacted us to see if some of the FAFATL artists wanted to be involved in one of their events. Several of the FAFATLers had a booth at the Maker Faire in 2012, so the organization was already familiar with who we are and what we do.
We are slowly heading towards fall here in Atlanta, but we still have the dog days of summer to get through. While you are hiding out inside from the 90 degree temperature with 90% humidity, why don’t you make some art? Just make sure that your popsicle doesn’t drip.

On the same day as the WeLoveFAFATL show (July 12,2014), there was an opening for Doodleslice‘s solo show at Hodgepodge Coffee. This FAFATL artist’s show consists of 1000 of drawings (doodles). Don’t worry, I didn’t take pictures of ALL of them ; ) If you didn’t make it to the opening, I believe the show will be hanging until the end of July (that’s next week!) or you can check out some pictures after the jump.
Atlanta loves festivals and there are a few coming up that are looking for artists interested in selling items. This is a great way to make back some of the costs of creating free art. I’ve tried to find smaller or less well known festivals that have lower booth costs. More info after the jump.
If you weren’t able to make it out to the corner of University Avenue and McDaniel Street for WeLoveFAFATL, I have some pictures from the show. The show was a collaboration with WeLoveATL, so the pop-up gallery was on and in their fantastic truck (pictured above). Keep an eye out this week for pieces from the show being dropped. Make sure to check #WeLoveFAFATL & #FAFATL.
