ASI 2018 Winter Newsletter

Happy New Year ASI Enthusiasts, Supporters and Volunteers!

Art Sphere is excited to share some events with you, and opportunities to get involved. First, a huge shout-out to all of our volunteers who came to our MLK Day of Service!  Hand in Soap brought their whole team out, while Hussian School students and others prepped art projects for our winter program. Cutting paper hearts for preschool program, two volunteers exclaimed, “You really can use everything!” “The leftover red can be shredded  sauce for the Pizza project, the black scraps from the Panda project can be cut for eyes – there’s no need to waste!” Indeed we love sharing our thought process behind our projects and finding the joy in  being resourceful. We look forward to the next event! 

No Hearts Left Behind

Art Sphere will be hosting valentine card making for seniors and soldiers on Friday, February 9th from 5 – 7 PM at Altro Cafe. Come enjoy good music, snacks and company while spreading holiday cheer![Leading up to February 9th, there will also be card making available during  Altro Cafe’s regular business hours for patrons to participate.]

About Rebecca Hatala

Hello there! I am a Temple University senior in Communication Studies and Art History. I love working with ASI because I see the immediate impact the organization has on our surrounding communities. I help with volunteer coordinating, as well as office management. Art, and the practice of creating has the power to transform lives, and I know this because it has done so for me while attending CAPA high school for visual arts, and further pursuing the arts as an undergraduate. As a waitress and full-time student, I make time for Art Sphere Inc because I believe in it's mission values, and see the positive impact they have in Philadelphia.
