I ♥ Art

Dear Lovers of Art,
I wanted to let you know about an event that I have coordinated in conjunction with the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (The MAC). It's called I ♥ Art. This event helps benefit Spokane Art School.
I have asked several local artists and community organizations to come and share their artistic abilities with kids of all ages. For example, Liz Bishop will be teaching kids h...ow to throw clay on a wheel, Tom Quinn will be teaching cartooning, Lynn Hanley will be engaging kids to participate in a mural, which will become a public piece of art and exhibited at the MAC.
Dianne Lemley will be teaching watercolor, Andrea Perry will be teaching animal drawing and Katie Steib will be teaching printmaking. Lou Carver will be there with a quilted heart project and Gloria Fox will be teaching Japanese book binding.
The Spokane Symphony will be there with their "Instrumental Petting Zoo". The Spokane Library will be story telling from art books. The Bubbillusionist will be making GIANT bubbles, a magician will be teaching magic tricks, the balloon guy will making balloon animals, but best of all Debbie Hill and her Merry Band of Face Painters will be face painting.
Enter your child's art in the art contest, if their art is chosen it will be reproduced onto thousands of Thank You cards and distributed throughout the Inland Northwest.
The event is open to kids of all ages. Please come and join us in a celebration of the ARTS!
