“Isabel’s House provides an important community service by providing a safe place for children to stay when their parents are dealing with crisis situations, such as homelessness or hospitalization. Our community is lucky to have so many amazing volunteers as well as Isabel’s House’s staff to care for children in need. In honor of the work Isabel’s House does and the continuing need, my small business would like to offer a chance to raise money to help provide for the children of the Ozarks. This should be a fun way for friends to paint, drink, and “show some love” for an incredibly worthy cause,” says RSVPaint’s owner, Emily Monroe.
On Thursday, September 13th, at 7:00 p.m., and on Friday, September 14th, at 7:00 p.m., local artist Sherri Fidler will teach her painting, “Lone Tree,” with the silhouette of two trees with the sun setting behind them. On Saturday, September 15th, at 7:00 p.m., local artist Rebekah Polly will teach her painting, “Autumn Leaves,” a modern take on falling leaves. “We selected some of our most popular paintings in the hopes that it would draw in nice-sized crowds to support Isabel’s House,” says Monroe. Pictures of the paintings can be found online at www.RSVPaint.com/show-some-
