"Art of Friendship" Social & Creative Healing Workshop

RESCHEDULING due to illness. We're sorry, but for the first time in 7 years, illness keeps us from having this event as planned.

We're working to make the rescheduled event, tentatively set for March 2018, even better than it was before. Email me and I'll get details to you directly when we have them set. Please contact Michelle for details as they develop at [email protected].

We hope you can make it in March! Thanks for your support, Michelle

We've chosen to have this very special event at Northwest Cellars because it's one of our favorite venues! Besides the Social Ticket with wine tasting, you may further support our work for comfort-oriented care for people and their pets by purchasing their award-winning, AHELP-labeled Washington wines.

Important information if you want a Friendship Art Drawing:

Sign up EARLY. Carla Elise will be creating just 14 Drawings at the Social! Those who sign up earlier will get earlier sessions and more time to complete their artwork.

1) Pay for your drawing plus event ticket (choose a $50 ticket). 2) Look for a short questionnaire to complete pre-event. 3) Thoughtfully complete the questionnaire beforehand and bring it with you. 4) At the Workshop, Carla Elise will get to know you and your friend's story in a 10-15 minute individual session. With your story and your questionnaire answers as inspiration, she will create a 7" x 10" line drawing using symbols depicting your animal friend's life and friendship the two of you shared.

The timing of your session will be based on the order of ticket purchase. You can "color in" your artwork using our high quality, fine tip pens, colored pencils, watercolors, and acrylic paints we'll have at the Social. Not feeling artsy? Imagine your Friendship Art Drawings in black and white, perhaps with a colorful frame!

If you can't make the Workshop, you can purchase a "Friendship Art Drawing Only" ticket. You will 1) Choose a $45 "Friendship Art Drawing Only" ticket, 2) Carla Elise will Email you a questionnaire, 3) after February 11, she will create your custom Friendship Art Drawing, and 4) you will arrange to pick up from her. There are only a total of 4 Friendship Art Drawing Only tickets, so get yours very soon!

Yes, there's another opportunity for Carla Elise's artwork at the "Art of Friendship!" She will offer a 15% off, special event pricing for one of her amazing custom-painted works of art. Carla Elise will generously offer a portion of the proceeds to AHELP Project, also.
