Let's lead them with compassion and they will create a just and humane world for people and animals. Our work with schools, empowers students by giving them a voice and showing them how to create art for social impact.
They begin with a deep inquiry around a variety of pressing social issues; with animals, always included, and, after choosing a topic they resonate with and feel compelled to change, they paint visual records of the status quo and have their artwork bring it to light.
With the aim of stirring and moving people to get engaged, the students and An Act of Dog, partner with non-profits working to eradicate those issues, and together, we change the world!
Stay tuned for artwork and prints from the students at the International School at Mesa Del Sol, supporting these awesome non-profits:
Service Dogs of NM, Beagle Freedom, CasaQ, ABQ Pride, Children's Grief Center, Street Cat hub, Watermelon Ranch, Babes and Bullies.
Paving the way, Mark Barone painted 5500 shelter dogs to depict the number destroyed, every day in the USA.
Social impact art, engages kids at a depth that's crucial for cultivating compassion and helping us unite our differences, so that, we change our current trajectory from a ME to a WE World, and live together as one nation. The social impact revolution is here to stay, and our arts-based charity needs your help to continue our game-changing projects with school kids to ensure that collective happiness reigns.
Our vision is to partner with collaborative philanthropists to create a hub for art that can fund what matters; where society's most pressing issues are brought into the light by art students/impact artists from around the globe. "LIVE AS ONE"Be Kind~Donate
