The Importance of Giving Back
We encourage our students to donate a percentage of all proceeds from the sale of their art. Donations can be made to the cause of their choice. From time-to-time, the studio will sponsor and organize a gallery showing and sale of our student's work that reflects a particular charitable cause or organization. A percentage of these proceeds is also donated.
Carolina Tiger Rescue
The studio's inaugural exhibition and sale supported the Carolina Tiger Rescue, a nonprofit wildcat sanctuary in Pittsboro, North Carolina, that offers public tours and field trips and is home to rescued tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, caracals, servals, bobcats and other wild animals.
International Fund for Animal Welfare (ifaw)
A special program to support orphaned baby elephants in Zambia saw our students produce an impressive collection of elephant artwork that was shown at a reception and then in the gallery for 30 days. A percentage of all proceeds was donated to ifaw.
A Stroke of Patriotism
A Stroke of Patriotism, an independent 501(c)(3) organization, focuses on supporting military veterans and their families in times of need. To date, A Stroke of Patriotism has assisted over 60 families. They have sponsored special needs children in therapeutic horse riding, repaired air conditioning units, paid utility bills, repaired vehicles, assisted veterans impacted by severe weather, adopted families over Christmas and much more.
Our Jean Flags are custom made using your family's old jeans. 20% of the proceeds are donated to non-profit organizations who in turn support the children of our servicemen and women in ways that enrich their lives.
