Letter to Donors from Tim Stone

June 1, 2016 By vincent-uribe

Dear Donors,My name is Tim Stone and I’m an artist at The Arts of Life. I came in May of 2010, so that is six years this year! I first got interested in art when I was young and it was always a hobby at home. In high school I decided it was my calling. The Arts of Life is an art studio where everyone creates different things depending on their personality and art practice. We have abstract artists and artists that draw other things like buildings, flowers, fruit, and animals. We also do screen-printing, have art talks, take field trips, and we have a wellness group. From the start, I liked The Arts of Life right away! I liked it because the artists make the rules too and we have a say-so. Everybody has a say-so. I’d describe my artwork as one-of-a-kind and it pops out. My ideas come from my mind and from online. I also get inspiration from walking around Chicago and Oak Park. I like to have a lot of colors and texture. I like to use acrylic paint, markers, pens, and pencils. I usually use canvases and sometimes wood, but mostly canvases and art paper. The artists in my pod have their own style. Hubert likes glitter. Guy really loves to use acrylic paint and watercolors. Christina likes to use paint markers for her comics. Everyone is unique.Everybody should donate to The Arts of Life because we will turn your donation into artwork! We need paint, pencils, and supplies. Your donation helps keep us going:?$25 will frame one piece of artwork?$100 gives us one month of paint brushes?$250 helps us buy a new pressure washer to screen-printThank you for your support!Sincerely,Tim Stone Chicago Studio Artist[[{“fid”:”9388″,”view_mode”:”media_original”,”fields”:{“format”:”media_original”,”field_file_image_alt_text[und][0][value]”:”Chicago Art Donation”,”field_file_image_title_text[und][0][value]”:”Tim Stone”},”type”:”media”,”link_text”:null,”attributes”:{“alt”:”Chicago Art Donation”,”title”:”Tim Stone”,”height”:476,”width”:713,”class”:”media-element file-media-original”}}]]
