World-Renowned Artist Fights Poverty with a Paintbrush

For art lovers everywhere, the chance to paint with world famous artist Lewis Lavoie is an opportunity many would never pass up.

Lavoie is hoping Albertans will agree as he gets ready to lead an upcoming SmashArt event fundraiser on Sunday, May 29, from 7-9 p.m. at the Bourbon Room in St. Albert. The Canadian artist is offering his services for free with hopes that his talents would draw enough people to buy tickets to support The Mustard Seed.

“The Mustard Seed staff and facility support so many inner city needs. For many people this is the only source of comfort and sustenance,” says Lavoie. “I feel that Edmonton is fortunate to have this facility and it is a blessing to contribute to its ongoing success.”
