Ceramica Art Affair Relief Fundraiser

Hello Ceramica and Elgin community!  

The Arts community is the second most impacted industry only behind the service/restaurant industry during this unknown time. We are all anxiously awaiting the day we can reopen the doors to our art studio and creatively reconnect with the community. Here at Ceramica, we are eager to continue our year-round effort and commitment of connecting creativity, art, and community! We cannot wait until we can offer ceramic classes and pottery painting classes/parties and help host and collaborate with other small businesses and continue our art events again.

So, please join us in rising to the challenge set forth by GoFundMe’s #GivingTuesdayNow #SmallBussinessRelief and make a donation to Ceramica. Every little bit helps, and your donation and support will make a cultural and creative difference within our community. If we raise $500 GoFundMe Charity will match it with another $500!

With that in mind, Ceramica has started a GoFundMe campaign to help survive the financial impact of the shutdown. Your contribution will help make the difference in our ability to remain an artistic hub and will help enable us to continue to provide a safe, friendly, creative environment for the people of our community.

Small businesses, like ours, have been devastated by the COVID-19 shutdown. Like most small businesses, our monthly income has fallen drastically, while many of our business expenditures have largely remained the same. These funds will “keep the lights on” until we can safely return to offering the exceptional fine art programming, we are passionate to share.

Your family’s safety is our number one priority. As soon as we get word that we can safely do so, we will re open to the public and with effort continue our art events and classes. We will notify you when we do re-open, and we look forward to seeing you! Until then, while our storefront is closed, but we will continue to offer paint-at-home pottery packages for curbside pick-up and drop off. 
Thank you in advance for your generosity and for any assistance you can extend, we could not carry out our mission year after year without the support of our amazing community and donors. Wishing you and yours much health and safety in the coming days. We look forward to serving you soon.  

 Creatively yours, 
Ceramica Studio ♡
