April is “Spread the Love for PACE” month at ArtBeat Studios.
PACE Center for Girls’ vision is “a world where all girls and young women have power in a just and equitable society; that each one deserves an opportunity to find her voice, achieve her potential and celebrate life defined by responsibility, dignity, serenity and grace.”
An art contest for 5-15 year olds, each participant will have a wooden heart to paint, collage, glitter, etc., with an underlying message of PACE Center for Girls.
The young artists will be divided into age groups and winners will be chosen by a panel of ArtBeat Studios’ artists. Participants will have their hearts on display at ArtBeat Studios for one month and the hearts will then be auctioned, with all proceeds benefitting PACE Center for Girls. Call Barbara at ArtBeat Studios for more information at 239-225-9770.
