Bright Side will be starting the first of the “Advocacy Through Art” series!
This series welcomes us to gain knowledge about a new world and empowers by kids channeling their artistic talents to make a positive impact on the world.
Through various forms of hands-on arts and crafts, this April four amazing teachers will guide us through the wonderful world of our canine friends. Kids will break into groups and draw designs for silk screens, having the chance to create the silk screen and create their very own t-shirts and stone art. Kids will be shown how hand-drawings can converted to computer designs and then further utilized ( totes, web, postcards, etc).
Kids will also “adopt” a dog and with the design of their t-shirt with limited quantities available for charity sale. They will see how art and their hard work can help bring positive impact to the lives of others. We have selected Animals Taiwan as one of the top organizations for this time. This is due their tireless efforts for the strays of Taiwan as well as my recent urgent cry-for-help to get these three puppies, victims of forced eviction, adopted. If you want to get involved, head over to Bright Side now!
