On Saturday, we hosted our very first creative workshop… like… ever! The workshop was focused around creating images to include in a calendar (a possible business venture for anyone interested in art or stationary goods!). You may notice a few seasonal drawings or paintings.
We hosted it at Istvan Gallery in downtown Oklahoma City with the help of our friend and gallery owner, Stephen Kovash. Stephen has been our friend since this summer when he let us host The Big Swanky Art Camp in his beautiful space after our usual studio was hit by a tornado. He’s a great guy, his gallery is super cool and modern, and we feel so lucky to get to partner with him!
Back to this workshop thing. We don’t know about you all, but the idea of gathering a group of 10+ artists and entrepreneurs who have autism or other developmental disabilities, who may have never known each other, and asking them to work together, for three hours, was rather intimidating. Not because there’s anything wrong with any of the people involved or the setting, but because it’s so difficult to know what to expect. The outcomes are limitless!
All that to say, the experience was awesome! We had a total blast and could not be more glad with all of the people who came to participate!
From the looks of how successful the workshop was, there’s a good chance we’re going to start hosting more of these creative workshops in the near future! We’re excited to have potentially stumbled upon a very valuable platform for sharing what we’ve learned about utilizing natural talents for business opportunities.

Our friend, Dr. Martha Garzon, came to spend the day with us! She was a huge help and a good friend to all of us!
