Outside Art Projects will be done outside the Coventry Children's Center door beside the playground, just past the steps to Lake Erie Ink. ​There will be room for 6 kids to space themselves out on tables as well as a drop cloth on the ground. ​Tools & materials will not be shared or will be cleaned between users. Kids are welcome to wear a mask. I will wear mine when working closely with someone. *PLEASE NOTE* Your child must be able to work outside next to the playground without leaving my area. I will not be able to supervise children that leave. Your child's skill level should match the project, as closely as possible, as I will be limiting contact with materials between the students & myself.

Obviously, our event will not be happening this evening due to the public health crisis. We hope that all our friends and supporters are safe and healthy. ARTFUL looks forward to when we can get our artists back in their studios and back to creating. We will reschedule this celebration when we all have a clearer understanding of when it is safe to do so. Please support ARTFUL and all of your favorite art organizations by making a donation if you can. Organizations like ours find themselves in precarious situations and many of the loans and grants that are available as stimulus are not going to smaller arts organizations. Our local arts and culture scene is devastated, but determined. ARTFUL will continue to work with our artists to ensure they are able to keep their studios and maintain a safe working environment for them when we are allowed to open our doors once again. All our best to all of you, and thank you. #supportlocalartists #cancelledduetocoronavirus #wewillreschedule #thankyou ... See MoreSee Less

Have you seen this making the rounds? Help artists support other artists by supporting artists. It’s a win for everyone! #artistsupportpledgeIf I sell all 10 Travel Journals I pledge to spend a portion on another local artist. #clevelandartists Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress @matthewburrowsstudio has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge The concept is a simple one. You post images of your work you are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping.) Every time you reach £1000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist's work for £200. So make a pledge and post your work with the #artistsupportpledge follow @matthewburrowsstudio to keep updated and the # to see everyone else's work. Repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors. Let generosity be infectious #supportartists This creates a dynamic culture and market, where all can contribute, whatever their level of success. This is a culture dependent on the honesty and generosity of our artistic communities at every level. So make a pledge, post your work with the #artistsupportpledge ... See MoreSee Less

A great idea!** Link to supply lists: https://www.mcharpermanor.com/blog ** FAQs HERE: https://www.facebook.com/McHarperManor/posts/852529695216819 The next few weeks are going to be a challenge. It's going to be hard on kids being away from school. It's going to be a challenge and huge change for working parents, and even the caregivers home with these little ones during the day - unsure what's safe to participate in during the break. We have a heart for our community, our kids, and our families. We want to help! Here's what we're going to do: Beginning next week, our studio will be going live daily with free art & craft tutorials to create at home with your kids! We'll have shopping lists (with links to the supplies you can order from Amazon) to have on-hand to complete the projects with us! We hope this helps the parents, grandparents, nannies, and in home providers to still have something fun to do with these little guys, and something exciting to look forward to during a time that can be quite overwhelming for kids. Art is therapy, friends! And if there was ever a time for it, it's now! Stay tuned and be sure to go to our website and hop on our email list - as more info will be available as soon as we can compile it! We can't wait to make some fun stuff with you guys over the next few weeks! ... See MoreSee Less

See you this afternoon!FYI - there is free parking in the lot off of Washington Blvd. and on the street, but because there is a matinee at Ensemble Theatre, spaces may be limited. If needed, you may pull up in the lot near the flag pole and drop off your artwork, then park your car in the city (metered) lot off of Euclid Heights Blvd. or on one of the side streets nearby. All visitors must use the southeast entrance by the signs for Ensemble Theatre & FutureHeights. Once in the building, you will want to make your way up to the upper level where ARTFUL is located (follow the signs). See you this afternoon! ... See MoreSee Less
