Thank you for participating in ArtSeed’s Eighth Annual Earth Week Art-a-thon!


Thank you for helping to make possible the Eighth Annual ArtSeed Art-a-thon!

On April 23, 2016, we made a variety of art at different stations during the ten-hour day. Art-a-thoners had a great time working to live music by Raymond Coats Rhythm and Blues, Craig Perry Guitar, and Patrick Maley and friends. Artists of all ages practiced drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, typing, book-making, wood-carving and more. Tremendous gratitude to our volunteers, especially June Lee, Trey Houston, Karen Kelly, Xander Weaver Scull and Tim Abeyta. Heartfelt thanks to satellite ArtSeed artist Luned Palmer, who organized her own Art-a-thon in New York. Thank you to Board member Matt Boris who takes the prize as largest Art-a-thon donor whose gift fed the race’s competitive spirit!

A special shout out to the top ten fundraisers this year: Luned Palmer (1st place), Sabine Gysens (2nd place), Josefa Vaughan (3rd place), Holly Edson and Sophia Bayson (4th place & youth winner), John Scheib (5th place), Lindsay Zackeroff (6th place), Miles Meadows (7th place), June Lee and Jade Kikuchi (8th place), Matt Boris (9th place), and Connie Freeman (10th place). Thank you to our in-kind donors, especially the Inn at the Presidio for the grand prize: a special night for two won by Luned Palmer!

A Child’s Delight
