Hello All!

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and are getting ready for a holiday cheer filled December.  I am very excited to announce I am a part of a wonderful opportunity to share Make A Difference (MAD) Art Auction and Exhibit – The Power of Art and Words: Reflections and Illustrations; Art Work Made by Children at Orphanage Shop and Make A Difference in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania Africa”. 

Hosted by Lisa C Williams, ATR at: 

Location:  MING Studios 420 S. 6th Street  Boise, ID 83702  (208)949-4365420

DATE:  Tuesday, December 16, 2014

TIME:  Doors open at 6:00pm; Silent Auction starts at 6:30pm and ends at 8:00pm with special guest speakers starting at 7:00pm. 
MAD’s Founder, Theresa Grant and Art Therapist, Lisa C Williams will be speaking about the benefit art can have on children as well as information about the MAD foundation.

Beverages and light snacks will be provided

See the artwork and poetry made by various children and youth who live at Make A Difference’s (MAD’s) Orphanage in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania Africa.  Bid on your favorites and take them home that night. Art purchases will benefit the Idaho nonprofit, MAD, which creates quality educational opportunities for youth and their schools; all purchases are tax deductible.

If you are unable to attend but are interested in donating to either MAD (or want to learn more about this organization) go to http://www.GoMADNow.org/ or if you want to help out with the expense of putting the art show together, you can donate to Art Alley Inc through me, just email me at artalleyinc@gmail.com and I will give you the details on how to donate.  Both organizations are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, thus any contribution you make you will be able to use as a tax deductible donation, however, our hope is you will be able to make it to the event as it is going to be spectacular. 

The show will be at MING Studios 420 S. 6th Street  Boise, ID  83702 (208)949-4365, which is a fabulous new studio and residency program and is currently hosting an amazing international artist resident, Axel Void, whose work will be on display during the art auction as well.  Please go to http://www.mingstudios.org/ to learn more about this artist, the studio, and the residency program.

Please pass this information on to anyone you think might like to be a part of this extraordinary night.

Cheers!  Lisa

 

 

HAS It REALLY BEEN A YEAR, YIKES?! OPEN STUDIO NIGHT DECEMBER 2014

Specialty Group Update No Comments

Hey All,  Hope you are finding ways to stay warm and relax during this wondrous yet sometimes stressful time of year and what better way than to come and do some art.  Open studio will happen on Tuesday, December 9th from 7-9 PM.  The price is $15.00, which includes supplies, drink and snacks plus all the fun you could hope for in a night. Come create holiday gifts, cards, ornaments, etc, or take the time to relax doing your own art that is not holiday related as it is so important to engage in self-care this time of year.

Please let me know if you will be coming by emailing me at artalleyinc@gmail.com so I can make sure all is up and running, however, you don’t need to arrive right at 7, you can wander in and out as you please, but if I don’t think anyone is coming I might bug out early.  I will send out a confirmation email when I hear from you so if you do not hear back from me, please send another email as there are times these things get lost in cyberspace.  In addition, there is limited space, thus I need to know how many might be coming to let you know if there is room.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.  Also, remember I am in a new location, 2082 S. Eagle Road (located inside Northwest Neurobehavioral Health - Neuropsychological Rehabilitation Educational Services, which is part of the Silverstone Business complex) Meridian, Idaho  83642; 208-955-7311 phone.  Cheers!  Lisa

Hello!

Hope you are enjoying this cooler weather and had a lovely summer and ready to get your creative juices flowing as we head into this new season.  After MUCH too long I am finally getting Mosaic Workshops up and running again.  I will be running a workshop on Saturday, October 5th and Sunday, October 6th and the cost will be $50.00, which includes all supplies, tools, and instruction, as well as some snacks and drink, although all are encouraged to bring treats to share.

Saturdays workshop will be from 11:00AM until 3:00PM and Sunday will be from NOON until 2:00, (times may vary some depending on class size and individual process).  Saturday is when the tiling creation takes place and Sunday is when we grout the work.  You will need to do some clean up of your work at home once the grout has completely dried, although you are welcome to leave your work at the Alley and return at a later date that we can set up to clean your artwork. 

Please RSVP to artalleyinc@gmail.com as soon as possible as there is limited seating.  I will email you back with a confirmation, thus if you don’t hear back from me in a day or two of RSVPing, please nudge me has emails have been known to get lost in cyberspace from time to time.  Also, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  Of note, I will need at least 3 people to sign up in order for this workshop to take place. 

Looking forward to getting creative with you!  Cheers!  Lisa
