Hey everyone, thanks for sticking with the blog, even though it seems like I’ve been posting less and less these days :( There’s good reason why though, well, for me at least. I’ve been working hard trying to find a place for myself to work within the arts, being both a part time art instructor to preschool/kindergartners, and also being an intern for OCMA. I’m gonna limit my gushing, but it really is amazing to be working in the field I love and have passion for, even if it is tough and I’m just starting out.
On the bad side, I have very little time for other things, with commuting to OCMA and interacting with 4 year olds all the time, I get very drained and mainly use my tumblr time to look at silly gifs. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to continue to update 626 Arts…. on the contrary, I want to make this blog even better! However, I realize that’s gonna take a bit of help, so you can kinda call this an open call… I’m currently looking for one or maybe two other fellow 626-ers who would like to help contribute to this blog. There’s no pay or benefits, but I will send you virtual high-fives and hugs… if that counts for anything?
See how generous I am? Y’all didn’t even have to do anything for that ;)
Anyway, so there it is, if you’re interested in being a a contributor to 626Arts, here are the requirements:
-Must be from or living in the 626 (That’s San Gabriel Valley)
-Must love art, music, literature, poetry, anything that falls under the large umbrella term “arts”.
-Be able to make at least one update on an event per week and/or local artist (yeah, so I haven’t done so much lately, but that’s the low bar I’m setting for everyone)
Just send me a message through the ask box, we can discuss more from there.
