Alice Doesn't Want to Leave

I am Alice V Schneider, a Detroit Artist, and I have had a series of unfortunate events with employment since May.  Although I have been busy making art and volunteering with several art institutions in Detroit and Hamtramck... I now find myself in a humbling precarious position.  In order for me to stay in my beloved home (which I have been in since 2009) in Hamtramck, I need some help. So rather than me begging for money, I would like to offer a print, painting or drawing for every donation. The larger the donation, the larger the work, for example:

$10 = 5"x7" print or drawing 
$25 = 8"x10" print or drawing
$50 = 16"x20" print or drawing
$100 = Private 3 hour life drawing session at my studio with you or someone of your choice as the model, you keep all of the drawings created within that 3 hour session.
$150 = 18"x24" painting or drawing
$200 =  3 hour workshop hosted in my studio, medium of your choice.
$250 = 24"x36" painting on canvas
$500 = Commissioned Work... you determine the size (nothing larger than 60"x60"), subject and medium... I will put it my spin on it.  

I only have a few days until November 1st, which is my eviction court date, so any help will be appreciated.

I have tried very hard to be a helpful part of Detroit's art scene and contribute when I can.  I will have my studio open to for pick-ups on:

November 11th, 10-8pm
November 12th, 11-8pm
November 18th, 10-8pm
November 19th, 11-8pm 
*If you are not able to pick-up the artwork, just send me a message and we will work out another time.  I will send an email out after the 1st with the address and details.

It would mean the world to me not to have to leave everything I love... I am reaching out to my friends, family and artistic support system.

Thank you, 

Alice V Schneider
