Welcome to ICE Collab,
I hope you find us well. I just want to welcome you all to our site; our group, our family, our collective, our collaborative, our home. Here, I hope you will find your voice. I hope you will find empowerment. I hope you will find inspiration and drive and faith and art and life!
I know with starting a company that thrives on other people's support, I will be met with skepticism. So I am also here to introduce myself, who I am and how I will operate.
I will operate with truth and honesty. I honestly hope to advertise your work, your art, your company with dignity and respect. I hope to teach with the purest of wishes for your success.
We live in a world of lies and manipulation but we need to bond together in the face of adversity. We need to come together and share our talents in order to create change in our community. Artists are so unique. Everyone sees the world in different ways and it is so important that we constantly strive to learn from the world around us.
I do not claim to be a good painter, but I will show the world my work. Maybe one person will feel something. Maybe when someone sees my work, a past connection finds an answer or maybe their emotions find a companion in the piece. Or maybe not, like I said I'm not amazing. But you bet your tuchus, if I see an opportunity to learn how to be a better painter, I'm gonna take it(or at least try to).
Point being, ICE Collab is here to provide classes, workshops, and productions to teach the people in this community about the importance of imagination, creation, and exploration. These three elements are key to leading a productive and positive artistic life. And I hope you don't just think that learning about the arts is just for people who want to pursue a career in the arts. The skills that theatre and the arts emphasize and support will help anyone that pursues a career with public speaking, time management, problem solving skills, pattern identification, human interaction, cultural differences, historical references, and countless more.
I am here to make sure that all of this happens. I am here to provide more opportunities to companies and individuals that want to expand on what they are familiar with. If you need a place to teach a yoga class and can use ours, I'm going to advertise for you. I want to work WITH you. I want to ASSIST you and BUILD with you. I am here to create art. Will you join me?
