Introducing Let's Make Art Matter

 
Hello friends,
 
We want to start off by saying we think you are amazing, brave, and wonderful people who are still chasing down their creativity and willing to try something new. And we love you for that.
 
We have all learned as we go through our days that life is hard, and we don’t necessarily mean just one person, we mean everyone’s. It may be one particular family that had a very rough year—from cancer to suicide to miscarriages to divorce. Every time something horrible happens we want to say something, anything, that could comfort them, but who even knows what to say in those situations? So instead of saying, we create. Just so they know we are thinking about them, just so they know they are loved. It is through these experiences that we realized that art can be so much more than fun illustrations. Art can help bring people together, spread love, and sometimes heal. We want everybody to know that.
 
So every month in our subscription box we include a little postcard. A postcard for someone who needs a little extra love or thought. But we need your help. While we would love to send these postcards to people we personally know, we want this to reach beyond my grasp, and that is where you come in. As you go about your day, think of someone who might need this. It can be anybody, a sweet neighbor that you appreciate, someone who is lonely, or down, or sad. Send us their information and we can see if we can brighten their day, even just for a little bit. Because we are all in this together.

    The subscription boxes are amazing, they give you way more than enough to paint the projects you paid for. Considering they don’t charge to watch the tutorial (some artists charge a subscription to watch their streams), and you can download the outlines for free, and shipping is free, the monthly subscription is a helluva deal.

    Incidentally, when I went to my local (big box) store, Blick, the items I purchased from LMA were much more expensive. For instance, the butcher tray was less than half price on the LMA website. To purchase the exact same brushes and tray was over $40 at Blick. I get an educator discount, but it still doesn’t come near the $20 butcher tray and brush bundle from LMA.

    I’m all for getting a deal and LMA provides one in a monthly package. They also organize charitable events, give you supplies, and direction to execute them. They are a top notch organization that is structured, educational, and personable.

    I enjoy this community and love the camaraderie. I’m shocked at how much I have learned from an essentially free forum. Today is the perfect day to point out how thankful I am for Let’s Make Art. Enjoy the day!

    Let’s Make Art Matter is my favorite part of each monthly kit. Painting to brighten someone’s day or week brings so much joy. Thank you for this opportunity.

    I found the right spot. So sorry for the duplicate. I would like to nominate Annette High. She is undergoing extensive and grueling chemo and deals with other health issues that cause the chemo to be more difficult to endure. She is a beautiful person with an upbeat and loving spirit. She loves art but does not have the energy to actively make art. She would be so blessed and thankful to be the recipient of creations by this group. Thank you for considering her. She is on Facebook and has a relatively open page if you’d like to check her out.
