Pour Your ‘Art’ Out for a Cause

Joan Marlow

If you’ve always wanted to experience acrylic pour painting (sometimes called “dirty pour” painting) or have no idea what this is but you’re intrigued, gather your friends together and join us on Thursday, Sept. 30, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Clarendale of Chandler, 5900 S. Gilbert Road, Chandler, AZ 85249. While you’re having fun and letting your inner Picasso emerge, you’ll also be supporting The Perfect Place Adult Day Care, a 501(c)(3) non-profit in Sun Lakes (www.theperfectplacecare.org), in providing social and recreational adult day care to those with cognitive challenges which, in turn, offers much-needed support and respite for their care providers.

Acrylic pour painting is fun and easy and requires absolutely no experience or specific art talent! Everything you need is included with this session! Our workshop facilitator for the event, Laurel Smith, Family Home Care, will guide us in creating a personal 10” x 10” masterpiece in the colors of your choice. We’re counting on YOU to bring the fun! Wine, hors d’oeuvres, and mingle time is 5:30 to 6 p.m., followed by our painting experience that wraps up approximately 7:30 p.m. Only $39 per person!

The Perfect Place exists to provide a safe, structured environment for socialization and enrichment activities. Each three-hour session has an activity director and volunteers. The $40 fee per three-hour session goes towards operational expenses. Scholarships are available to families in need of support. Its services are made possible from fees, tax-deductible donations, and fundraising activities. Funds raised from this event will be used to enhance technology supporting TPP services to participants and their families.
