Brushstrokes At The Beach – A Painting Fundraiser

Art Area Studio 51 and artist, Re Kielar have partnered to host a Paint and Sip fundraiser for the benefit of Senior Services on Thursday, August 3rd, 2017. Please join us at Art Area Studio 51 at 51 S. Spring Street in downtown Elgin.  Doors will open at 4:30, painting instruction will begin at 5:30. We’ll enjoy chips, salsa, tacos, & sangria to put us in the beach mindset and then create our own beach scenes to take home. The cost of this evening is a $50 donation to Senior Services and also includes all painting supplies and professional instruction. There will be artwork from local artists donated for raffle prizes and also available for purchase.

“Senior Services greatly appreciates the generosity of Art Area Studio 51, and our long-time Advisory Council member, Re Kielar in the creation of this fundraiser for our Agency.  We invite the community to come out and enjoy this wonderful event while raising funds to support our local seniors,” says Executive Director, Bette Schoenholtz.
