How it Works

After signing up to participate, artists receive vouchers (up to $50 per artist) to purchase items to transform from one of The Salvation Army's local Family Stores. Artists take a "before" picture of their items, and then deliver completed works of art (maximum 3 per artist) by Friday, April 10, to The Salvation Army Headquarters. These are auctioned at our May 9 luncheon.

UPDATE: We have reached our Artist Limit!

If you are an artist, have any artist related question or would like to learn how you can be a future artist in transforming a Salvation Army thrift store purchase into a unique and one-of-a-kind treasure to be auctioned at our event, please contact Deanna Teders, Color Art Printing, at (907) 277-2409, or email
