Art for a Cause

forever-everlasting_staticmedium_mna_smallInternational Fine Art Fund board member and fine artist Hilary White is expanding her Made New Arts program to the Alachua County Department of Juvenile Detention.  White launched the first Made New Arts program with Ignite Refuge and Partnership for Strong Families in a Gainesville, FL shelter.  She documents the progress of the youth program on the Made New Arts blog.  White, who is passionate about offering people a constructive outlet for their experiences, is now planning to teach art classes in the Juvenile Detention Facility in Alachua.  There, she plans to facilitate weekly classes, mural projects, and showings of the artwork within the facility.

To get involved in the formation of this program, visit White’s blog.  The print pictured above is being sold, with 100% of the proceeds going toward purchasing art supplies for Made New Arts at the Alachua County Department of Juvenile Detention.  These prints are limited, so keep an eye on the website for more works to benefit the expansion of Made New Arts.
