Art Ala Carte

So....Saturday night is the new Friday.  Yeah...oops.  I've been so busy with Aria's fundraiser that I totally forgot about my Friday blog post.  But now I get to share some photos from Aria's art open house at Art ala Carte.  But before I do I want to say a few words about Art ala Carte.  The concept behind this venue is brilliant.  When you enter the place, you grab a tray and head to the bins, which are filled with trinkets, doodads, and all sorts of craft supplies.  Its like a buffet dinner but you fill up on craftiness rather than food.  In a nutshell it is totally Aria's kind of place. If you live anywhere near the Portland Metro area you really ought to stop by for an afternoon of art fun with the kids.

Art ala Carte is located at 319 NE Wygant ST Portland, OR 97211.  Find out more about this great place at and like the facebook page at

Aria starts creating while Feather looks on.
Max does not mess around with his sculptures.  If you look closely you can spy a roach on a golf tee.
A super cool marble sculpture Scottie made.
Everyone is busy creating.
Amber and Rian hard at work.
Stella enjoying some of the best cookies EVER from Le Cookie Monkey.
Aria the elephant had a blast and would like to thank everyone for their support.
Don't forget that you can still support Aria's efforts to save the elephants by bidding on some of the great handcrafted elephant items in her auction at  You can also purchase a card designed by Aria for only $2.50 + shipping.  There are three designs to choose from.  If you cannot do either, share the auction.  The more the word is spread, the better the chance to raise money for Elephant Family.
