Question 1: Draw a picture of a memory you have of something you experienced with MABELLEarts.

It was one of the first or second events I went to.  It was at Applewood Shaver House.  Young people I wouldn’t have expected to be together were sewing together.  It was a lovely surprise - a surprising moment.  The first time I truly understood MABELLEarts.

I think for the first time I felt a sense of community that I don’t know if I’ve experienced outside the town i grew up in.  It suddenly made sense - it all clicked.  There is no way to fully articulate the feeling of it.  There is not an effective way of describing the feeling - you have to just go be part of what MABELLEarts is up to.

Question 2: Draw a picture that expresses a hope you have for MABELLEarts or the Mabelle Community.

I think for the first time I felt a sense of community that I don’t know if I’ve experienced outside the town i grew up in.  It suddenly made sense - it all clicked.  There is no way to fully articulate the feeling of it.  There is not an effective way of describing the feeling - you have to just go be part of what MABELLEarts is up to.
