Looking for a creative way for you and the kids to give back to the Austin community? Look no further! If you appreciate fine art, and self-expression Art From the Streets (http://artfromthestreets.com) is your answer.
Art From the Streets was created to provide a source of income for the homeless living in Austin. The organization is a volunteer run program that allows for a safe, empowering, and encouraging environment for Austin's homeless population. These men and women are given the opportunity to create meaningful artwork in open-studio sessions held at St. Davids Episcopal Church (http://stdave.org) downtown. And I'll be honest, these guys are creating some really cool stuff! During a yearly exhibit, participants are able to display and sell their work. The Exhibit will be held December 6th and 7th, 2014 at the Austin Convention Center (http://austinconventioncenter.com).
To donate or register as a volunteer visit their site, listed above. Let's support the healing and transformative practice of creative arts in Austin!
