As promised, there are photos here of the paintings that were made on Saturday January 14th during the Bee Creative event we held at Cheers Paint & Sip studio.
We love all the paintings and we love that people came out to have some fun in the name of bees. Beelieve it or not, only two of the people in the group are beekeepers themselves. The others are either indirectly involved or not at all which made things even more fun.
The event was dedicated to the Rusty Patched Bumblebee as it had just been added to the Endangered Species List on January 10th. It was fitting that the painting was of a bumblebee.
Without further ado, I present to you the very encouraging work of our Apicultural Artists.
We had a great time doing bee themed paintings at the event this past Saturday at Cheers Paint and Sip in Omaha, NE. The painting was of a bumblebee in a field of flowers (for most of us, others got uber-creative) which we dedicated to the Rusty Patched Bumblebees which were recently placed on the Endangered Species list.
Here is a photo of our participants and their excellent works of art. One of their paintings will grace the header photo of this website for the month of February. The video and results post will be out soon so you can see all the creative fun that was had in the name of bees.
Bee an artist! The Bee Smart project wants to do more than just provide people with information. We want to share experiences. One of the best ways to create unique bee related experiences is to stimulate the creative flow within people.
On Saturday January 14th from 1 to 4 pm as part of a unique arrangement set-up with an equally unique local small business, Bee Smart is excited to present to everyone and anyone interested in bees, beekeepers and beekeeping a chance to bee creative and share this truly awesome opportunity.
Cheers Paint and Sip is a terrific little place doen the street from Lo Sole Mio Restaurant at 3052 S 32 St. Heather and her talented, friendly helpers will bee ready and waiting to help you bee an artist and have a great time.
As part of a select special event and at a very special rate just for our patrons, friends and supporters (only $20.00 per person and you get to take your painting home with you!), we invite you to come and create a bee themed painting while you relax with a special beverage (there is an open bar for our wine and spirits appreciating friends Participants MUST bee 18 or older to participate and coffee, tea and other beverages on hand. The bar is a cash bar so bee prepared). You do NOT have to be a beekeeper to participate in this special activity, you just have to love and support bees, beekeepers and beekeeping.
The creative specialists at Cheers will see to it that you have a great time and leave with a bee-autiful piece of art that you make yourself. All the while, the Bee Smart camera will be rolling to share the experience on one of our unique video show presentations. (Don’t bee worried, if you don’t want to bee on camera, you don’t have to) One of the undoubtedly incredible paintings will be chosen to bee the Image of The Month for February 2017 on this Bee Smart website.
The original painting you will bee making your own version of looks like the one below…
