We Can Do It! T-shirts & Koozies a Heartfelt Fundraiser for ARTworks Vass During covid 19
***** Thank You!!! *****
Thanks to your enthusiasm and support of this project, our first batch of Tshirts sold more quickly than we dreamed possible. Additional shirts are now being ordered as your requests are received. We expect them to be in hand within two weeks of the date that you place your order, and we'll update you by email when they arrive. Thank you for being patient with us, and we promise that it will be worth the wait!
This project began innocently enough when Angela Price and her son Sean, age 12, took to the sidewalk in front a shuttered ARTworks Vass to surprise us with his chalk drawing. We were delighted, and we loved it so much that we issued a call to Artists on Facebook, inviting them to break out their sidewalk chalk to create.
And they did.
We were blown away by the enthusiasm and creativity that was being posted as a result of our prompt, and we began to discuss the possibilities of a Sidewalk Chalk Art Event on the other side of covid 19.
Then came this.
Angela Cummings Thompson posted this Chalk Art Creation by her daughter, Cecilia Thompson, Age 13. Again, we were blown away! In "We Can Do This", she even highlighted our favorite hashtag, #MyARTworks Vass!
The response on social media filled our hearts, and we declared our experiment with Chalk Art a success.
But it wasn't over yet.
Cecilia, who with her entire family has helped to create and donate 240 masks for members of our community, began to discuss with her mother the possibility of doing more. At her tender age, she expressed what ARTworks Vass meant to her and our community, and together they reached out to us to see if we'd be receptive to them ordering T-Shirts and Koozies featuring her original artwork, with the proceeds from sales to benefit ARTworks Vass.
It was an offer that we couldn't refuse.
Now you too can collect "the early work" of Emerging Artist, Cecilia Thompson!
