Adopt a Senior Artist @ Hawthorne- An Optima Living Community in Fireside (Cochrane)

Wednesday August 18

12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

Price: $24.00 (Pre-registration is required)

We are looking to our local Cochrane residents and other fantastic supporters of the arts to see if we are able to find a way to bring a fantastic pottery project to the residents of the Optima Living Community of Hawthorne in Fireside on August 18th, 2021!

Crock A Doodle in Calgary really wants to have these wonderful senior artists to continue their joy of painting and we are willing to contribute a portion of funds directly to make this happen, but during these difficult times as a small business we can’t do it alone! We are looking for some generous Cochrane or Calgary residents &/or other local businesses that would like to support the arts and the seniors at Hawthorne with this joint initiative of bringing pottery painting onsite to brighten their day. The project we are looking to share this upcoming month is a combination of spring planters and gnomes, which we thought was a great project to brighten the rooms and garden spaces of the residents.


Normally, the pieces we are bringing for our Seniors this time around (in a to-go kit format from our studio) would approximately be around $30+tx each, but we will be offering it for those that wish to purchase a kit on behalf of a senior at Points West Living for $24+tx and adding an onsite instructional session free of charge for all painters at Hawthorne. If you wish to support our local seniors that want to get creative, please purchase a pottery painting kit to donate to them and we will take care of the rest!

We can include (if you wish) your name to let them know which Family brought this opportunity to them OR the name of your business if your Company is interested in subsidizing this painting experience, as well as a little message if you include that in the comments section at the time of purchase.

The community was interested in trying to obtain 14 painting kits for their residents this time around, so that is our goal! Please help us reach that goal and bring a smile to every senior artist interested in painting onsite at Hawthorne.

Do you know of another facility that you would like this initiative to be brought to? Please write us here and let us know more information! If you have a contact person you would like us to speak to, please let us know and we will get started on spreading the joy of art all over town OR the City of Calgary. Art has so many benefits, it’s immeasurable <3
