Painting with the Stars™ is a fundraising initiative created to help gain awareness and support to nonprofits that provide underprivileged youth access to the arts.
Everyone should have access to the arts, yet many do not due to financial means, school budget cuts, and other variables. Art not only supports creativity and cognitive skills but helps support emotional health and well-being. Those who don’t have access miss this crucial and commonly dismissed essential part of a balanced educational program.
Painting with the Stars™ supports youth by collaborating with high profile individuals with zero experience in art to create paintings. A portion of the proceeds of those sales is donated to nonprofits that cater to giving youth access to the arts. Having individuals create art with no formal training amplifies young minds to know that anything is possible. You don’t need a formal education to create. Just a few simple materials and you can create anything you set your mind to.
When our celebrity volunteer’s pieces are being sold, there will be 3-5 young aspiring artists who will be chosen to create a piece and sell among them. This enables our youth the ability to see that anything is truly possible. Anyone can have access to art and most importantly anyone can create art. Our wonderful buyers will be supporting local nonprofits while owning a piece of art with compassion behind it.
