Envision Children to host pre-Valentine's Day painting fundraiser


With Valentine’s Day approaching, there’s no better time to consider thoughtful gift-giving ideas.
 
Envision Children, a nonprofit that provides educational enrichment and added support to students in need of that “extra push,” is hosting Sweet Art, a Feb. 12 “friendraiser” at Art Design Consultants downtown. The benefit features the creation of Valentine-themed art, small bites, wine and, of course, friendship and good company.
 
Rosalyn Fuller, local artist and Envision Children board member, will lead a painting lesson in which participants gain knowledge of various techniques to aid them in the creation of their own unique designs.
 
“No artistic skill or talent is required,” Fuller says. “If you can paint a circle, you’ll be fine. We did an event like this before, and it’s fun to see how distinctly different each painting turns out to be.”
 
All proceeds benefit Envision Children, which will put funds toward tutoring students in need.
 
Space is limited, but interested parties can sign up via Eventbrite, and one lucky winner will go home with an added bonus: a Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant prize package valued at $125.
 
“This is an opportunity to make a gift for your sweetie while having a great time and supporting Envision Children,” says Sheryl McClung McConney, Envision Children’s founder and president.
