What We Do

Activities

ART CLASSES:

Painting: Participants will paint their very own canvas per class. Classes are led by an art instructor to paint a subject with your group of participants.  Follow by lead instructions until your own freestyle addition from your own creative thoughts with assistance and guidance from instructors.  They will show you hands-on techniques and styles for you to try and copy and try again if needed.

MURAL EXPRESSIONS:

Mural Expressions is a mural art program that engages with the community.  We assist communities to creatively express in an ‘ARTnership’ by participating in painting or viewing a mural production in full development.  This program is designed for community groups that showcase supportive and relatable mural art.

VENDING PARTICIPATION:

The ARTners are frequently invited to participate in many community vending events, to sell art, perform live art and to provide information on their current projects. Especially community annual events such as The Sacramento Banana Festival, Dia de Los Muertos, National Night Out, Franklin Blvd., Arts & Brew, Holiday craft faires, etc., just to name a few.  If you would like to invite ARTners to be a part of your event, give us a quick email at artnerscollaborative@gmail.com or fill out our contact form.

ARTners "A Walk In My Shoes"

 

This is a program offered by the ARTners Nonprofit 501c3.  The program is designed to represent people in all Walks of Life! It is about the things you love in life and what you have endured. It can be as deep as you would like!  These paintings are something that you can be proud of and hang in your living room or give to someone as a gift.                

 A person requests the painting or requests a gift for another person.         The person requesting the painting fills out the form about their life and the things they love about it. You may request the same for another person if they don’t want the painting to be of them. We will also ask for authorization to use their story, photo, painting on social media, a possible art show and the ARTners website or it can be kept confidential if that is your preference. ARTners will ask for a photo of their feet or their feet in their favorite pair of shoes. This is the photo that will be painted with creativity added based on the response to the form.  ARTners will designate an Artist to paint their photo and expressions of life. The ARTist will paint by what the person lists on the form. We will not make edits upon completion. This is a creative expression. The person will request the size: 12” x 12”, which costs $75 or 24” x 24”, which costs  $125. 

If you are interested in requesting a painting, please contact us at artnerscollaborative@gmail.com

 

ARTners Helping People Heal
