HEART SPOT PRESENTS
“WE’RE BETTER TOGETHER” 
A FUNDRAISER FOR WASHINGTON KIDS IN TRANSITION

April offers the opportunity to paint together creating uplifting art. In this particularly stressful time, it is our theory that getting together with others to paint will be both healing and a lot of fun.  We are opening up registrations at $30 per artist for 2 "Paint-Together" dates in April.
            Join Tracy Felix and Sue Robertson at Cole Art Studio on April 7 from 12:00-4:00pm OR April 11 from 5:00-8:30pm to create uplifting art that will be displayed in the window of ARTspot for Art Walk on Thursday, April 20.  Sales of the art we create in the painting sessions will be sold to benefit Washington Kids in Transition, a local nonprofit that provides assistance to homeless children in Edmonds.  You can learn more about them at washingtonkidsintransition.org.
           Canvases will be provided by ARTspot and  studio space will be provided by Cole Gallery.  All proceeds from the $30 charge and sales of the paintings will go to Washington Kids in Transition.  
If you wish to join us, please make your check out to Washington Kids in Transition. Mail or deliver it to ARTspot at 408 Main Street in Edmonds.  No credit cards please because we want 100% to go to Washington Kids. Be sure to let us know which session you want to attend.

  • Canvas is provided, but you do need to bring your own art supplies to the painting sessions.  Painting sessions are not instructional but we will surely inspire each other! 
  • Artists  are invited to bring extra art supplies that they are willing to share or give to other artists -   Another way to share the love!  If you don't have paints we are asking artists who have extra to please bring some to share. 
  • If you are attached to the art create you do not have to donate it to the sale. 
  • We will also take donations to sponsor an artist for the $30 workshop. 
  • 12 Registrations available for each of these two dates: April 7 from 12:00-4:00pm OR April 11 from 5:00-8:30pm
  • This is a fun opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause plus it will be a lot of fun to paint together!

Your friends in art, Tracy Felix and Sue Robertson

March 2017: Barbara Wyatt "Nasty Woman" Pendants proved to be a great Fundraiser. Over $300 raised for our local ywCA

Thank you Barbara Wyatt for making and donating your time to a great cause.  Barbara is a very talented, local artist and very good friend of ARTspot. Barbara is one of the most versatile artists ever! She is always learning and teaching new techniques.
       When she decided to go to the Women's March in Washington DC this January, she went into production mode making these delightful "Nasty Women" pendants. It seems she could not make enough of them, as so many women who saw them wanted one! 
      This month's community fundraiser was for the YWCA.  This organization helps homeless women and children in our community.
