National Art Project for Teen Students Honors Women with Breast Cancer
Through the “Pink Art Project,” an initiative by the One River School of Art + Design, teens create one-of-a-kind artwork to raise money for breast cancer charity BrightPink.org.
Never Hear “I’m Bored!”
As part of the partnership, the One River School has selected artist Liz Luisada to make an original painting that will be celebrated through a limited edition print. The print is available at the One River School website and all net proceeds from sales will go to the charity. Various other items that benefit the BrightPink organization are available on the BrightPink website.
“When we can tie some real social value to our lessons, I know we are making a real difference with our students and our communities,” said Ross. “One of the best things of all is we are going to exhibit our students’ work in public places, so that this art project can have an even greater impact promoting breast cancer awareness.”
One River School of Art + Design currently operates eight school in five states, including schools throughout the metro New York area, Dallas, Chicago, and Portland, OR. One River hopes to expand their reach by opening a dozen new schools over the next twelve months.
