Art Club’s “Cupcakes and Canvas” Fundraiser

Bring friends and family who enjoy creating simple, fun arts and crafts and chowing down on some tasty snacks to the Art Club’s fundraiser, “Cupcakes and Canvas.” Cupcakes and Canvas will be held here at HHS on Tuesday April 11. The theme is fun and whimsical, taking you “up, up and away” in a simple walk-through painting tutorial of bright and colorful hot air balloons.

The event is at 6:30 pm and will be held in HHS cafeteria. Tickets are $25 per person. However, there are discounts if you buy multiple tickets: Two tickets are $45, three are $65, and four cost $85. Tickets are not sold at the door, so make sure to get them ahead of time. You can buy tickets from any Art Club member or from HHS art teacher Melissa Chaney.

Cupcakes and Canvas is a fun event to come down and paint with the Art Club. Everyone will receive his or her own large canvas and will have access to an Art Club member who can provide assistance during the walk-through tutorial led by Chaney. Cupcakes and pastries will be provided to participants. There will also be a photo booth to take pictures of you, friends and family with your finished masterpieces.

The proceeds collected from the event will be going towards a good cause or charity selected by Art Club. The Art Club, however, will not say to whom yet.

“It’ll be a surprise!” said Chaney. “Our goal is to at least sell 50 tickets. If this is successful, we would like to continue these fundraisers in the near future.”
