Support an art studio renovation and expansion project

Greetings from Lovlee Art Studios, LLC! My name is Lovelee Tang. I am a wife and mother of four and the primary teacher/owner of Lovlee Art Studios. Lovlee Art Studios is a community art studio space that empowers children and adults through art. We offer multimedia art experiences such as birthday parties, art studio workshops, camps, community fundraisers, corporate art events, virtual art workshops, art programs, extracurricular artistic enrichment and more. Our unique creative style focuses on sustainable, process-based art projects. In our projects, we use upcycled, recycled and repurposed materials combined with elements of nature, paints and traditional arts and crafts materials. I am fundraising for our second studio to help cover renovation expenses and to purchase art materials, furniture and equipment for the new space.

Due to the uncertainty of extending our current lease beyond November 2023, I proactively needed to secure permanent accommodation for Lovlee Art Studios. Last September, I found a place that ignited my vision for our community studio. I secured the site with a long-term lease for LAS. I finally have a home and I am strengthening our impact within the community. However, the interior of the space needed extensive renovations to meet health and safety standards. Funds raised will help cover the unexpected investment in initial repairs to the studio space while allowing us to get our second bathroom up and running with plumbing and the addition of a sink. Going forward, we aim to have the second bathroom rebuilt and designed to meet ADA standards. The funds will also allow us to hire and bring in guest artists to teach specialized classes, programs and workshops. The funding will allow us to purchase lots and lots and lots of art materials and equipment for our students!! Bringing in guest artists and the ability to purchase gear that enhances the creative experience excites me so much!

I have a vision to have a fully stocked studio with various clays, paints (tempera, watercolors, acrylics, oil paints, etching ink), brushes, paper, canvas, scissors, pencils, crayons, markers, oil pastels, smocks, easel table, color printer for flyers/marketing, cleaning and sanitizing supplies, additional shelving, gallery hanging system for art exhibits, tables, chairs and much more. Indeed, the list is endless when the financial resources are available. These funds will allow us to continue to establish our new location while providing creative programming at no additional cost for materials.

This project is important to me because I believe that the arts enrich the foundation of the community. I also believe that art IS therapy. The arts heal in unexplained ways. When I was a child, creating art was my refuge. Expressing myself through my unique artistic style has allowed me to make sense of the world around me. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to create this safe space for other children and adults.

I see our new location as a community hub, and this fundraising opportunity will allow Lovlee Art Studios to embark on creative service for our community and beyond.

Thank you for the opportunity to share our story and our journey!
