Bliss & Kitsch Design Studio will be launching in the Fall of 2013. 

Making art has never felt better. Attend an art show, bid on work, schedule an art workshop at your location, or download a template for a project that you can donate to the cause. Proceeds from the sale of goods made and donated to the program go to local charitable organizations.

Visit the Art Camp for Big Kids site for details about our program, including registration, participant testimonials, and more.

Offline Saturday is a social experiment focused on helping us understand how much time we spend in front of an electronic screen. By committing to spend at least one Saturday per month disconnected from electronic media, we begin to tangibly rediscover community and connection.

Go to the Offline Saturday official site.
