We moved across 6 states from
Colorado to Michigan in 2017; 3,000 miles each round trip with a 24 ft. trailer

We are happy to adapt to any fundraising theme our clients/sponsors
believe best represents their mission and we are not restricted to
working only with 501(C)(3) organizations. Our TEDDY BEAR CLINICS
primary mission however is closely linked to why ART SPIRIT CENTER LLP ©
(Now RETRO ARTS SPIRIT CENTER, in Michigan) was founded in Colorado June 2013 by Steve & Sharon Larson to better utilize our
Larson (photo on right side) is a self-employed professional
Fine Artist painter/printmaker/teacher;
whose artwork, resume and stories about his work in newspapers, magazines &
books can be viewed at:
Sharon M. Larson was the only child of a librarian
mother and photojournalist father who jokes of having been fed stories through
the umbilical cord and born with a library card clutched in her infant hand☺!
Nurtured with books throughout childhood, a lifelong love of storytelling was
bred and later led to Sharon’s BA in English, summa cum laude, and Montessori
Teacher Training. She knows that storytelling is one of the most powerful
motivations for a child to read and literacy skills are essential for academic
achievement. Good stories provide sources of self-revelation and can spur a
child’s ideals, problem solving skills, and life goals. So, Sharon & Steve seek
to advance literacy one child at a time with the provision of affordable books
for schools plus the creation of home libraries in which multi-generation family
members can really spontaneously and truly enjoy reading books together!
