Hopefully the title will shock you into action . . . . all for a good cause.
Give and Take: That is the event happening at Artspace this Thursday in downtown Raleigh. There are 25 works for only $25and 50 artists donating work you can pick up for a cool 50 bucks!!!!! Seriously, thats a steal. Instead of paying for the art its like you're stealing it. There will also be 5 works auctioned off.
All of this is for scholarships to give local youth the chance to attend arts education classes this summer. I'll be teaching two classes so hopefully the proceeds can bring a few more deserving kids into the classroom. I hear its a bit crazy and the paintings fly off the walls and into the hands of the fortunate early arrivers. (Is arrivers even a word?!) The US educational system does not offer enough for creative thinkers focusing on the arts, so these programs are huge for aspiring young artists.
