Desire to Inspire
Organized by: Lacy Criss
I'm in the process of finding a location to open an art studio in Joplin, MO. I want to offer a variety of creative outlets to our community. I will be creating different classes such as acrylic painting, photography, sculpting, and even learning to play the piano. I will be hosting several fundraising events to help give back to the community and also I will offer a lot of my services to individuals who normally wouldn't be able to afford it. The majority of what I want to do and the services I want to provide I want to be free to the public. Art is therapeutic. I want to offer children, and adults alike a place to go to put everyday problems aside. I want to offer them an emotional outlet and help them build their self-esteem. Engaging in creative endeavors can be a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. The creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps you to resolve conflicts & problems, develop interpersonal skills, and much more. In order for me to do this I will need donations. I need help getting into a small studio and also supplies. I'll be accepting donations from the community for something's but I need financial help to get it up and running. I feel once I get it off the ground, I'll have no problem staying up and running with the support of this community and the money I will raise. I also have local artist and musicians who will come speak or help with workshops as well.
