OCEAN AWARENESS ART PROGRAM – EMPLOYING ART TO EDUCATE YOUTH AND FOSTER ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISM
The Abel Arts Collective is partnering with environmental nonprofits Sustainable Coastlines HI and PangeaSeed to create an art & environmental curriculum for a group of local North Shore Elementary kids. Led by local art teacher Laura Couto, we will engage a group of kids in an after school group for 8 weeks, fostering activism and encouraging expression of environmental issues through a series of art-focused lessons. The culmination of the project will be an art show where the kids present their own works of art inspired by the environment. We created a workbook focusing on the issues to supplement the classes, guest speakers, and art activities.
Please join us to help raise funds to cover this project and for our nonprofit partners.
Erik Abel has also released a limited time edition canvas print of “Solar Soul” specifically to benefit this event. This 14″x14″ fine art print will be available through May 31st and can be purchased for $175 right HERE. Along with other great art from our partner artists, Colleen Wilcox and Brett Kirkpatrick.
Thanks for your support!
