"First, my personal Art Fast gave me new insights to my art. So easy to get in our comfort zone and stay in the box. At first I felt very challenged by not having paper as the major element of my process. As I moved on, I really enjoyed exploring other possibilities/materials to create assemblages. I had previously used fabric and other elements before but never without paper leading the way."
- Donna Bolkcom, an Art Fast participant, a visual artist from New York City
"9 days of participation in ArtFast, I think it has brought about significant changes to my approach to learning Art. Earlier I was not so persistent on my Arting but these 9 days of Navrathri really had me sitting at my desk flipping through web pages reading and learning many things about Art."
