'Art for People' return from world tour bearing good news and good wishes
Hello friends and family,
We wanted to send a message to say thanks to everyone for their support over the last year and to give an update of what we have been up too regarding Art for People Projects and our family travels.
Our family has just returned from a 4000 km bike trip across the U.S.A. and Cuba where we had many super adventures, met many great people and had fun making art in new and exotic locations.
We managed to have a prolific year of art making which was aimed at raising money for a variety of organizations. Through the sale of donated art in 2011, we managed to raise over $10,000 dollars which supported projects in 7 countries (Canada, U.S.A., Kenya, Philippines, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Cuba). We have had art shows and exhibits in Canada, the U.S.A., Nicaragua and Costa Rica with great support and feedback from many people along the way.
We look forward to our upcoming art shows in Victoria (June 23, 2012) and Rossland (June 29th, 2012) and invite you to come and join us. We welcome any questions, feedback, ideas or suggestions regarding fundraising for different projects in the years to come.
We have witnessed the power that art and creativity have in supporting social change and look forward to finding new and creative ways of being a part of this in the future.
Andy Holmes, Martine Bedard, and family.
