“Logic will get you from A to B.  Imagination will take you everywhere.”

–Albert Einstein

This Tulsa Lifestyle art issue celebrates the incredible creative talent, artistic happenings and resources available in the Tulsa Metro area. As children, our imaginations soar and we are inspired with costumes for play acting, crayons and finger paints to create masterpieces, toy guitars and microphones for the making of a rock star and even building a fort in the living room keep the creative juices flowing. Creativity helps with problem solving and allows you to think outside the box. Being exposed to the various arts leads to an appreciation of the talent, the dedication and an understanding of the world around us. Enjoying a show or just looking at a beautiful piece of art allows our mind to wonder, to relax, to gather ideas. Appreciation of music is magical because it’s the universal language. Everyone understands it.

The Tulsa area has beautiful museums, gardens, and a multitude of venues with entertainment.  It also has a lot of resources to expand or appreciate your artistic inclinations. Free music at a park, sewing classes at a local store, art classes for children at one of the museums, dance classes at one of the many studios, and the list goes on. Not only is Tulsa an artistic community but it is a giving community.

In this month’s issue, meet Matt Moffet, Tulsa artist and executive director of the Tulsa Girls Art School. Learn about the The Hardesty Center for Dance Education that will be opening in Broken Arrow. Your own backyard can be a work of art after you read the story by Cherlyn Reeves, Lead Designer with Tom’s Outdoor Living. We’ve also included an inspiring story about a young man at Cascia Hall and the opportunities available to students. And if you love oysters and local beer, you don’t want to miss the Oysters and Ale event. The Around Town and the Calendar departments are filled with lot’s of events, fundraisers, and information about what is happening in Bixby, Broken Arrow, Jenks and Tulsa.

Happy St. Patricks Day
