frazee Art Camp

Hello!

I’m am honored to have some super excited and vivacious girls in my studio today! The Frazee Center is a place for under resourced children in the downtown Greenville area and, this week, they’re painting and drawing at the White Whale Studios (where I work each day).

The progress these ladies made this week is remarkable!! Having little to no exposure to the arts, they learned how to draw what they see – not what they think, and about the various tools you can use to draw. The goal for this week is to help these girls see how beauty can bring joy and that it’s possible to create an alternative lifestyle by selling your work.

We’re opening an Etsy shop to inspire them to own their own destinies and I would LOVE your support when we do! The artwork will be rough and young, but the light in their eyes is powerful and growing with each moment. The shop will be open in a few hours, so please stay tuned!

We are strong when we stand together.

Most days you can find me, in the studio with my little girls, speckled in oil paint (drinking too much coffee), creating artwork for collectors around the world and collaborating with select brands. Check out my artwork on EmilyJeffords.com
