We talk a lot about our family and the various beliefs they have instilled in us. One important aspect of our lives and therefore our business is the importance of being involved in our local community. From the beginning, we knew that giving back and being an accessible resource to those of all incomes and avenues was non-negotiable. Beyond offering a gift card for silent auctions, we are in a unique position to be able to offer our services to nonprofit organizations and other community events as often as we can.
When we opened our original location, we hosted a paint night with Big Brothers & Big Sisters pretty much immediately and continue to offer a class for the pairs once every three months. We also hosted the Preston Taylor Ministries to host a night of painting with mentors & mentees. Both of these organizations provide invaluable opportunities for the youth of Nashville to find inspiration and support from an older peer. Last May, we partnered with the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt to help launch the first annual Haute in the Hospital, which this year has become the Kids in Nashville Lab Coat Project. This event raises awareness of the amazing work done daily in the hospital and is continuing to grow into a collaborative, multi-day event that incompasses both patients, hospital works, families, artists, and more.
Over the holidays this year, we made a craft for the Crieve Hall Christmas Tree lighting, helped organize and participate in A HIllsboro Village Holiday, and we also hosted a craft table at the Chinese New Year in Hillsboro Village. In addition to our other classes, we’ve added opportunities for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to request private classes to complete their badges.
Each non-profit class we host is offered at a discounted price. If you are a non-profit organization in the area and would like to apply for a private class or request a craft for your event, please let us know! You can complete a few questions here and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can :)
