Friendships start in many places. Ours are starting in homes and offices, in galleries and studios, over tea and cookies or tea and granola bars.
We have started a new “friend-raiser” called Mint Teas, most of which will take place in individuals’ homes. They bring together a group of creative or entrepreneurial people who are interested in the work Mint Artists Guild does, or intrigued by our mix of business and entrepreneurship training and creative projects.
The first one took place this summer in Ann Arbor, hosted by a creative entrepreneur who has purchased Mint art and donated to us before. She invited a handful of friends: artists, a teacher, a financial type and a former museum leader. Mint brought along cool iced tea, one of our emerging artists and some stories on our early successes.
Now that colder weather is here, we look forward to serving hot tea and sharing stories about some of our alumni, such as Damon FirstBorn Chamblis, who was honored as our Featured Alumni at Mint Masterpieces.
Anyone may host a Mint Tea in a business, a home, a community center or someplace else. So please, get in touch. Select a date; set a goal for your fundraising and let’s drink to our creativity and growth!
