Creative Expressions Donation
Creative Expressions would like to thank Ashley Bennett, and independent associate representing Aflac, for providing matching funds to the Creative Expressions Spring Art Show. The Art Show raised $2,400 which was matched by Ashley! This money will help ensure the continuation of the Creative Expressions program at Aspire and also assist them in taking a trip out to Rapid City to visit the Suzie Cappa Art Center, which is similar to the Creative Expressions program but was established 20 years ago.
Creative Expressions is a division of Aspire that creates opportunities for people to explore and refine their artistic abilities. This not-for-profit art studio provides an inspiring and encouraging environment for artists to create, exhibit and sell their work. They feature their artwork in Spring and Holiday art shows, displays in the Gallery and around Aspire as well as taking their artwork into the community at the Farmer's Market, the Wine Walk and other events. They are also expanding their art sales to include prints of their artwork that can be framed and on greeting cards.

The funds raised will be used for a trip to the Susie Cappa Art Studio in Rapid City, SD and art supplies to empower the creative minds of the artists we support at Aspire, Inc.
