This year we have chosen again to support one of our favorite local non-profits whose mission is very close to our heart through a spring fundraiser involving our students and their art.

OPEN HOUSE FUNDRAISER EVENT: APRIL 28, 6pm-8pm Join us in a night of family-friendly artistic fun supporting one of our favorite local non-profits, Art with Heart! On April 28th, from 6-8pm, Museo Art Academy is hosting an open house fundraiser event at our Issaquah studio with painting, printmaking, face-painting, pottery-wheel throwing, raffles, big prizes, and a silent auction with art donated by our instructors.
We'll be selling tickets for the event, so bring cash, card, or you can charge your card if we have it on file. Tickets will be $5 for one activity and $15 for four. All proceeds from this event go straight to Art with Heart and towards their mission of helping children overcome trauma through creative expression.
Put us on your calendar and bring your friends!
The Organization Art with Heart is a Seattle organization with a mission to bring healing and wholeness to kids, teens, and families through art therapy made accessible through their variety of evidence-based, therapeutic, and interactive books and programs. Through collaborations between both mental health professionals and popular children’s book illustrators, these books and programs are created specifically to aid children struggling through illness, divorce, violence, or the loss of someone important to them.
What We’re Doing to Help Students are invited to attend one of our upcoming instructor-led workshops, free of charge, to create an original 2D work of art based on the theme, “What Makes Your Heart Happy?” We’ll then use this completed artwork to produce a set of 25 professionally printed note cards, made to order of your child's design. Net proceeds will go to Art with Heart.
In addition to the cards, on Friday, April 28, we will be hosting an open-house fundraiser that we encourage all our students’ families to attend. There will be creative and artistic opportunities to get involved and support Art with Heart in a fun, family-friendly way, through donation-requested activities, raffles, and more. Families will be able to pick up their pre-ordered card sets at this event as well. More information to follow.
