ArtSeed is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching children's lives through modern and fine arts. Since I was about 10 years old, I've been a part of this organization as a student, an apprentice, and now a staff member. Among the most notable moments in my time with ArtSeed has always been the annual Art-a-thon, taking place during Earth Week, and a gathering in which we make art, do raffles, and enjoy various scheduled music and events all day.
This year, we are doing the Art-a-thon, but this time with a little twist! With COVID-19 running its course, I and other members have been coming up with ways to do the Art-a-thon more remotely, through various social media and over Zoom conference calls. We came up with some ideas on how to do this event, such as:
Live, scheduled tutorials for computer projects and on working with recycled materials at home
DIY videos made by Artseed or borrowed from other sources
YouTube streaming of the event at the venue (if it's even going to happen)
The main goal, as it has always been, is to raise money for our big event: the two-week-long Summer Intensive, in which kids can learn art skills and go on special field trips. So we have made a Mightycause just for donations! From one dollar to a thousand dollars, anything is appreciated.
You may donate here on Mightycause to me (Aber) or any of the people on the leaderboard.
Thank you for reading!
