Find your inner artist at One Human Family fundraiser

Whether you know how to paint or not, you can have fun expressing your individuality and help a local nonprofit in the process during One Human Family of the QCA’s “Individuality Workshop, Sip and Paint Party.” 

The fundraiser will be at 3 p.m., Sunday, April 30, at Metropolitan Community Church, 2930 W. Locust St., Davenport. 

Proceeds will benefit One Human Family of the QCA, a Quad-Cities area community-based human rights organization.

“Art, self-reflection and expression go hand-in-hand,” said local artist Sheila Boyd, who will lead the workshop. 

“This will be an afternoon of creative discussion and painting. While we paint, we will discuss words and phrases that represent something to us as individuals,” she said in the news release. “The hope is that we can look inside ourselves, express our thoughts and feel seen and heard. In the process, we can strive to learn a little more about each other and those in our community.”

The painting will be a 20-inch-by-16-inch mosaic. All supplies to paint one canvas are included with each registration. No prior painting experience is required, and all ages and abilities are invited. 

Attendees can paint alone or partner with a friend, child or grandchild. Children younger than 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Refreshments will be available. Participants also are allowed to bring their own food and drink.

One Human Family is dedicated to welcoming and protecting the life, dignity and human rights of all people in all places in the greater Quad-City area community.

Registration is $35 per participant. For more information or to register, visit or here
