Marin Open Studios has graciously opened their doors to share the art of elementary aged children. Paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces will be presented. Prose will accompany some of the work. Our subject is climate change. Kids come together to express what is happening to our planet, what it feels like, and what we can do about it. Both the beauty of our planet and the pain of our planet will be expressed in the art. Get ready to be dazzled and touched by kids - our future. Please click on individual art pieces where you can view them enlarged and read the poem or description that accompanies the art piece. Now an online exhibit, all art will be priced at $20, keeping all kids art at the same value. Due to shelter in place, all originals will at this time be kept by the kid artists. Purchasers of the art will receive a JPG of the art piece that they can print or keep digitally. All proceeds are going to the Greta Thunberg Foundation, a non-profit that focuses on promoting ecological and social sustainability, as well as mental health issues. A big thank you to Stephanie at Indie Alley who graciously offered to host this event, to Lotus Web Design for making the flyer and design image, to Janice at Postal Services Plus, and Michael at Avatars for their generous donations printing flyers. Thank you to all the principals and teachers in the Ross Valley and Lagunita's Valley District for helping spread the word! And of course a huge thank you to the Kid Artists themselves!
My name is Samantha Nadia Terriss and I am organizing this event. I am a mom and work as a Somatic Therapist, Body-Mind Educator, Parent Coach and Family Mediator.
I am presently offering free classes to kids during this shelter in place, to support their mind body and energy.
I am excited to share that Kids Art for Climate Change will continue to other venues and expand to include kids art from all over the globe as a benefit and opportunity to connect and share and inspire. Please let me know if you'd like to be on my mailing list!
This project holds a special place in my heart and I am most grateful for the opportunity to work with children and their families in conjunction with Marin Open Studios. I am supporting children in expressing their feelings thru creativity and positive action. May this event support our children to feel individually and collaboratively empowered to stand strong in their convictions for our planets healing.
