WE LAUNCHED Liloan Art Thrive a little over three weeks ago in the hopes of providing an outlet for people trying to cope with the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The response has been both overwhelming and hopeful. Thank you so much for your support. I hope that this little passion project has given you and your families hope and joy in these trying times.

Now that we have awarded the winners for our Art Pot Painting, and our art and painting workshops are underway, we come to the final leg of Liloan Art Thrive: the Painting Competition.
