Give Us A Smile!

In early 2015, we launched our auction signature campaign, themed ‘Give us a Smile’, asking our members, artists, friends and celebrities from all over Europe to send their ‘smiles’ anonymously in the form of 20x20cm canvas artworks…

So far we have received smiles from all over the UK, Spain and Greece!

Our first Smile auction took place on the 25th of November, 2015 at the Rag Factory, and it was an action-packed event which included a silent auction of our first smiles’ lot, a live auction of a handful of unique artworks, an exciting raffle and a great atmosphere.

With the crucial donations raised, Studio Upstairs is able to help more people who would otherwise struggle to get the support they need, and nurture amazing artistic talents. The donations raised allow for opening up more opportunities for new members to join the studio and the development of a studio in South London which will allow us to welcome more members and meet the ever-increasing demand.

The first event is successfully over, but there will be more, so watch this space as there are a few ways in which you can get involved:

  1. Sign up to our mailing list and get invited to our next auction!
  2. Send us a message if you wish to be added on our events mailing list.
  3. Give us a smile!
  4. If you are an artist from the UK (or beyond!), or feeling artistic, email us your postal address and we will send you a 20x20cm canvas to work your magic on!
  5. Get a smile!
  6. The first smile auction is over, but the smiles are not! Visit our online shop to check if your favorite smile is still available – they are small, discreet, beautiful, very affordable and would make a great present for you or your beloved ones!
