as more and more public schools are experiencing budget cuts..seems like the "arts" are the first thing to "go". breaks my heart. our local high school drama department is just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! each year they perform 2, maybe 3 wonderful, top notch productions.... this year, they just received word that due to budget cuts, they will only be able to perform ONE show. (with just one show per year... there are not enough parts for everyone that might want to participate.. some kids who might be a "star" in the making will miss out) so sad. a good friend of mine, local business owner, and someone that is ALWAYS ready to rally, jump in, and help out (Kim Baker of Bijou Salon) organized a very special fundraiser to help out... and maybe generate enough funds to permit a second, end of the year drama production.
"Project Wings"(Artists interpreting: "It's a Wonderful Life") here's my donation - set of (4) 8x8 mixed media titled- "daily reminders"
(these are based on a NEW series from drooz studio: 50 wall art design pieces debuting in January thru Oopsy Daisy. the new line will consist of 10 "home" designs", 20 "girl" designs, and 20 "boy" designs targeted towards the teen market - each sending a message of positive thought, encouragement and motivation)
... if you are local.. be sure to stop by "Imagine THAT" Skaneateles NY : Oct 31-Nov 4th for "buy it now" option. 15 Artists: 15 Angels: 15 Paintings.
raffle tickets will be sold at the drama production dates Nov 4th - Nov 6th for remaining paintings.
