Everyone feels hopeless to help the Ukrainian people but there is something you can do. Join the Beach Art Center Artists on Sunday, April 24th and paint a 12"x12" sunflower in acrylics guided by Acrylics teacher Kathy Thomas. Each student will receive a canvas, paints and brushes, and step-by-step instruction (if needed), or use your creativity to paint your own unique sunflower! Fee is $38 and includes all your supplies. More info and register here: https://www.beachartcenter.org/community

During this event we will also have a raffle of a beautiful original painting by one of our teachers, Shawn Dell Joyce. All proceeds from this event will be donated to Doctors Without Borders to support their ongoing efforts to respond quickly to medical humanitarian emergencies —including their operations in and around Ukraine.

Amid the Russian invasion in Ukraine, the world is coming together to show its sign of support by displaying the nation's official flower. Sunflowers have become a symbol of unity and a message of love for Ukrainians everywhere. We'll take a photo of the finished sunflowers to display on our website and social media pages which we hope you will share on your own sites. 🌻

Mary's teaching technique is a great way to learn the basics of watercolor painting.
