“Make Art 4 Art”

Over the past two years the Albany Art Room has benefited greatly from its community. Now owner Karen Schupack is looking to give back by donating all her profits from April 20-26 to the City School District of Albany in her “Make Art 4 Art” fundraiser.

These donations will help support the donation of digital cameras to Albany High School’s photography program and art supplies to the elementary schools.“Make Art 4 Art” will support not only public-school arts, but also Albany Art Room’s mission to encourage artistic expression in artists of all ages and experience levels.

“The name Albany Art Room comes from the idea of an art classroom.  I feel a connection to the school classrooms in the area; it is where my inspiration for the studio came from,” Karen explained.  “In this political climate, where funding of art programs to public schools is threatened, I want to do whatever I can to help.”

 The donation will be presented to the District of Albany at the Albany Art Room, 457 Madison Avenue, Friday May 7 at 6 pm.

Albany Art Room offers painting, drawing, beading, and many more projects and programs for adults and children. Classes are offered in all mediums to suit various ages and experience levels.  One of the most popular features at the Albany Art Room is the new pottery studio.

The Albany Art Room is open every day except Mondays. The Albany Art Room has space available for special gatherings, such as birthday parties and baby showers.  An art supply market and gallery is also housed at the Albany Art Room.
