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
- Virtual prizes
- 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!
