We offer social artmaking events in visual, literary, and performing arts in Westchester
“Creativity” is prized in pop culture and sometimes in business. For many, it gets overshadowed by “real life.” Making art is not only fun, it’s healthy. Good for our brains AND our social lives.
When we were little, we didn’t need to think about making time for creativity. We didn’t take it too seriously. And we benefitted from the activity, whether working in a group or on our own.
As adults, it is harder to fit in time for artmaking. However, the more we deprioritize this part of ourselves, the more stressed out we feel. Let’s change that. ;)
The Smokestack promotes #socialArtmaking as a way to make this happen.
— Shannon McDonough, Founder
The Smokestack, which grew out of a previous project founded in MA, launched in Westchester in February 2022. Six workshops, 100 participants, an art residency, and many new creative, entrepreneurial, and smart new friends later, here are some highlights of this first year of social artmaking.
Thank you to everyone who supported the project, who registered for workshops, who purchased artwork and who told a friend.
