“Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~ Pablo Picasso
Along with a few other Seattle Art Link members I am particapating in an Auction for Stroke victims taking place in Stoke-on-Trent December 7, 2011. This will be my first event to participate in outside the United States. We will be mailing a box to England this week. I wish I was able to go in person!
The Stroke Art Cafe are a support group in Stoke-on-Trent for those affected by stroke. As a non-profit group they rely on fundraising and donations to help keep the group stocked with art supplies and equipment. 100% from the auction will go to the group.
For more information about the auction or about the non profit visit, Stroke Art Cafe Art therapy can really do amazing things !
I promise to add some photos of the Art we send from Seattle later this week!
