Monday:) McKinney Creative Community

10 Mar

“Creativity begins at home, especially if your home is in McKinney, Texas. We have the greatest Creative Community.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


Another busy day here at the ranch. Wait a minute…. there’s no ranch here, but it is Texas. I got up early to get the brownies in the oven for our McKinney Creative Community potluck gathering at The Cove at 5:30 PM. While those were baking, I made my usual tray of sandwiches to take for the potluck for the senior center country dance at 1. (My kitchen is still a mess,)

Our McKinney Creative Community gatherings at The Cove every second Monday of the month are always fun and informative. There is so much talent in this town, it’s unbelievable. Everyone brings food and beverages to share, and we chat and network, make new friends and visit with old friends.

Tonight, our guest speakers were Kelly and Justin who came to talk to us about Kelly’s Art Shack right in downtown McKinney,

Kelly’s Art Shack

312 East Cloyd street
McKinney , TX 75024

CALL:  (214) 935-8891


Art is just a painting on a wall for some. For some, it is a way of life. If you are among the blessed few who can recognize, appreciate and enjoy art as it is, then you have come to the right place.

KGO Designs offers a wide range of artistic services ranging from wall murals, original paintings to specialty items that are custom designed by gifted artists. Be it at your home or your office, we can make your space extra special with our art.

Kelly and her husband Justin, recent newlyweds, told us about their dream of creating an artistic oasis and creative space here in McKinney for friends, families, visitors artists, musicians, and all around fun people to sit and relax, surrounded by art, nature, and beauty. The walls are filled,with at least a hundred original paintings, and Kelly’s murals line walls, fences, and pretty much every building surface her talented brush can reach. Kelly’s Art Shack can host small weddings, gatherings, instructional classes, music venues, and more.

I haven’t been by to see this cool artistic oasis on the Square, but I’m definitely going to check it out real soon.
