Sell your art! Make some money! Make a difference!
We have a great opportunity for you to sell your art and help out a worthy cause. Caring with Colors is an organization founded by Deb Drager and Lynn Brandt to benefit victims of cancer and their families.
Caring with Colors will be having an art event on Sunday, September 22 which is open to all artists to sell their art. This is not only a great opportunity to make some money for yourself, but by donating 10% of your profits to Caring with Colors, you will be helping many cancer victims.
Caring with Colors has partnered with Faux Retreat and is offering a 3 day Caring with Colors Faux Retreat prior to the art event. Profits from the retreat will go to Caring with Colors. Deb Drager will be teaching her very popular canvas art class, along with a pricing and marketing class.

Q & A
1. What if I only have one or two pieces of art and don’t need a booth?
We would be happy to take your art and sell it in the Art Store or you can get together with other artists and have your own booth. How about a booth for your local Idal or other art chapter or organization?
2. I am interested in the Faux Retreat, but not the artFest or vice versa, do I have to participate in both?
Absolutely not! Both will benefit Caring with Colors so we are happy to have you whichever you decide.
3. I am a distributor for art tools and products, can I get a booth?
Absolutely! You can have your own space or you can sell just a few of your items in the Art Store.
4. What can I sell at my artFest spot?
Almost anything you have made…Jewelry, canvas art, paintings, photography, crafts…to name a few.
5. I have a line of stencils and I am interested in being a sponsor. Are there any “perks” for being a sponsor?
Absolutely! Get one of our sponsor information kits.
