Take an Art Break Podcast is an ongoing and open ended conversation between two artists that ask each other a new question about art each week. Join the conversation by submitting a question of your own! Lisa and Lauren met while obtaining their Master of Fine Arts Degrees at John F. Kennedy University in Berkeley, California. During a casual conversation both women realized they had similar goals as artists and advocates for the arts. And so, in 2008, they began collaborating and calling themselves Art is Moving. Since then, Art is Moving has formed as a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization and turned into an online art movement to make art a part of every person’s daily life. We welcome you to join us in our efforts to give everyone an opportunity to discover the positive impact art can have in their lives!
