I'm currently working on getting set up to participate in art festivals in my local area. In order to start participating in festivals, I need the physical supplies such as a display tent, display boards and panels, tables, table clothes, sling back print displays and wooden crates, display shelves, vinyl signs, and hanging hardware. In addition to selling my own work, I hope to make my booth interactive where patrons can screen print their own drink coozies and bandanas. Screen printing supplies will include a heat press and ten small screens as well as ink. I feel that art should be affordable and approachable to everyone regardless of income level or educational background which is why I hope to sell affordable prints of my work and have a creative experience for patrons.
I've started a GoFundMe to help me achieve this goal. As a public school teacher and emerging artist, I do not have the capital to purchase the supplies for festivals which is around $4000 just in display setup. Please consider donating to my GoFundMe. Donations over $100 will receive a free print valued at $35 of "Sea Rocks" or "PNW Fire Tower," Thanks so much for you help!
