A&S at Aten University 2018

Eleven Gentles active in the areas of A&S and Scribal gathered at Aten University this past June 24th. This is an annual work-day business meeting held in our modern clothes for the purpose of all Kingdom and Group Officers to learn how to better serve the Populace in their areas of expertise.

Mistress Aoife (Ee-fa) led the discussion and provided us many useful materials to help with our offices.

Those in attendance rocked the handwork as well! Making buttons, embroidery and calligraphy.

Take aways from the class of note:

1) Kingdom A&S Competition 2018 will be held Sunday, September 30. It will be a One-Day event and the Arts Entries will be available to the populace to view. Artisans May converse with their judges and the populace about their arts.

2) After the completion of the advertising period for the position of Kingdom Minister of A&S on June 30, TRM will select a new A&S Minister. Both Mistress Aoife and Mistress Magdalen have applied for the post.

We are seeking articles about your art, humor, photos of your art, scientific treatises, how-to videos, Bardic and music performance videos and all things A&S!

4) Mistress Aoife is creating the

Framework for a Royal University to provide the populace a method to set and complete A&S educational goals. You may earn achievements and recognition in various A&S disciplines.

Handwork – A Variety of Art and Artisans

Upon the occasion of TRM Ivan and Ian’ka’s ascent to the Thrones of Atenveldt, They proclaimed Their Whim that all gentle-folk should aspire to work on projects in their spare moments, like at court or in camp during a break between fighting tourneys or whenever it be convenient to work with their hands. Handwork is an age old tradition that displays the beauty and industry of the Populace. Below are some examples from King and Queen’s Champions, Phoenix Comic Con, Kingdom A&S Collegium and Boast and Toast. More to come as the Summer winds on.
