Here's something small for now: a quick look at our second art class! I hope to get some more pictures up later! :D
We are getting really close to our big day! The Art Show and Auction for Charity is coming up quickly! We should be getting some last-minute housekeeping done this weekend, which consists of various little tasks, but most important, updating the art inventory. So keep a lookout for Monica's complete paintings collection online soon. I am also working on flyers and PR materials... I'll be putting up photos from the art class yesterday, which was relaxing and enjoying. I also have a short video of some our students painting (which will be on YouTube soon)! Thank you again for attending. :D
Latest Big News: We should be displaying an ad for the Art Show on the community access channel! This is Bright House's local channel 3 for Livonia, Redford, Farmington, Farmington Hills, and Novi. Look for us soon!
A Special Thank You: Thank you to Rev. William Phillips and Zoe Ministry. Without the hard work of Rev. Phillips and his organization, Monica and I would be lost! We are indebted to you and we look forward to next event with you!
We now have a YouTube channel!
We're planning on posting videos from our art class and events, so stay tuned! :D
I scanned in Monica's photos today, and no worries, I'll have my digital camera tomorrow! :D
So we're pretty excited for the second art class tomorrow, especially since the first one went so well! Monica is going 'round town to network for the November 5 Art Show and Auction. In the meantime, I'm trying to keep up with recording all of our contacts... It's a full-time job!
I'll be working on some flyers and ads and getting random things done... It should be a busy week, for sure!
See you in art class tomorrow! :D
It has been a super busy day for me! After loading the Art Class photos, I reorganized some pages on the website and edited Monica's Artist Statement. So that is finally up for all to enjoy. She is really so passionate, it's wonderful. :D
Personally, I'm also excited because I moved up from a small notebook to an organized binder for all my Galleria Monique notes! Hurray! It took a while to put together, but I'm much happier now, and I think I'll definitely sleep better!
I certainly hope Monica and I can meet up tomorrow to get some more things done. I'll be working on some flyers as we continue to network for the big event on November 5! And we thought the gallery opening on Oct. 1 was a big deal...! XD
We'll keep ya updated!

Hello all! Just got the few pictures up from my phone camera (sorry about the quality, by the way)! In our rush for getting things ready for the first art class, we both forgot to bring our digital cameras! Luckily, a couple of our students took pictures with a disposable... Monica will pass some of those over to me later to scan, and I will have those up ASAP. I made sure to make up a list of stuff to bring for next time... For now, enjoy these pictures! :D

Monica and I got together today and it sounds like there are some more sponsors for the Art Show and Auction, which means that if we continue networking the way we are, the Art Show is going to be awesome!
Looks like we're just having a minor issue with the header fonts, but other than that, things are coming along. Woot! :D
Where to start?! First, welcome to the new and improved Galleria Monique; version 2.0! XD It's been a long night, but recently I've been looking into a new Web design with Wordpress, Wix, and (somewhat) Google Sites... Anyway, Weebly was absolutely wonderful when I started using it! It's definitely known for its "drag and drop" design, which is easy for beginners. I'm just so pleased with the options that were available, how few errors occurred, and how little time it took to upload so much content...
Secondly, on to our events! Monica had her first art class with the seniors at the Baptist Manor, and I think it went very well! I'll be getting the photos from that up ASAP. Thank you to everyone who came! Monica and I are really looking forward to the next art classes!
Thirdly, we'd like to stress the need for volunteers, input/feedback, and donations. We're always looking to help out around the community more and more. So let us know what we can do!
Fourthly, I will be working on the CafePress.com store as soon as I can. It's been a busy week, and I assume that it will only get busier. That's a good thing though, so stay tuned!
And, the GRAND FINALE: The Art Show and Auction for Charity! We're so excited and yet apprehensive! Artists, merchants, musicians, everyone needs to come forward! Support your band, sculptures, or local business! We want your talent! Monica is currently looking for donations for the big event, which is November 5 for those of you who haven't marked your calendars yet! E-mail Monica ASAP if there's any way at all that you can help. Hope to see you there! ;D
So it's an all new website and an all new blog! We're now on Facebook and LinkedIn, so connect, Connect, CONNECT with us and spread the word! :D
