Angel for Art Raffle to provide relief for children who have suffered trauma

Win an original 6 ft angel painted on vintage tin by artist Rita Knight and help a wonderful cause at the same time.

“Raffle tickets on sale for $1.00 each at our counter. Buy one, buy many. Donations help fund our Art MD boxes that are given to children who have been through a trauma or loss. Drawing is on December 13 during the Monroe Shopping Nights at the art center,” said Barbara Barth. “You don’t have to be present to win. Just in time to give as a present, use for your holiday decorating, or garden art year round.”

These boxes will be made available for free to various agencies to provide to children in traumatic situations.  Studies have shown that the sooner you can get art materials in someone’s hands after trauma the faster they heal and it even wards off PTSD.

These boxes will provide comfort to hundreds of our kids in tough situations and in times of loss.

Contents include: crayons, a stuffed animal, a hand-painted angel by our artists and our original Art MD Activity Book by Donna Coffman. Other supplies will be provided as funds allow: Play Dough and puppy & kitten stickers.

You can help …

  • funds are needed to pay for the supplies and boxes …
  • business sponsors (name will be printed in subsequent printings of the box and the book) …
  • artists are needed to paint the angels for each box.  Supplies are available now or you can bring your own, or paint at home.
