  • September 27, 2014:~~INKAA did well! INKAA had its debut meet and greet with the Fort Thomas community at the Merchants and Music Festival. Over 12,000 people attended. The Fort Thomas community was very supportive and welcoming and helped INKAA get closer to its fundraising goals. Although we have a long way to go to create the Art House and start off debt free, we raised additional needed capital. We met many local artists and artisans; future INKAA teachers and students; and a whole bunch of community members that are anxiously awaiting our grand opening in November. I sold several pieces of art for the fundraising campaign
