We always love finding new organizations helping artists use their talents for good. Our See America campaign has helped us find other park-minded artists, and when we just met Karin Leonard, founder of Paint The Parks, we knew we had to share it with our artists - especially all the CAN painters out there!
The purpose of PainttheParks.com is to spark a fire in the hearts of artists, art lovers and nature enthusiasts all over the world.
Participation is easy. PaintTheParks.com provides complimentary links to artists' websites, using pages that feature their parks paintings worldwide. Participating artists donate a minimum of 10% from the sale of their parks paintings to the respective State and National Park Associations, or a Park-related Program of their choice.
And when patrons purchase from participating artists worldwide, in addition to owning beautiful original art, they also demonstrate a commitment to conserving these precious sanctuaries worldwide.
Through painting, purchasing and donating, we intend to protect precious nature reserves for future generations.
Would love to have you join the quest to paint and preserve our parks, whether you are an artist, an art collector or a nature lover! Please visit http://www.painttheparks.com/participants/ to get started.
Our Green New Deal campaign premiered on March 14, 2019 in Washington D.C., at Bold V. Old, a daylong convening where speakers including Stacey Abrams, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris discussed bold ideas for our biggest problems, including the Green New Deal. On March 16 In Oakland, CA, Creative Action Network joined artists and activists at the Green New Deal Create-A-Thon, where youth artists from the Sunrise Movement and others worked on new designs for the collection. Youth activist Rio says that after seeing videos of Greta Thunberg leading student climate strikes in Europe, “me and my sister were empowered to make some sort of difference.” Rio and his sister Maddy recently rose to internet stardom when their student group confronted Senator Feinstein about the Green New Deal a few weeks ago. Maddy says she is now “trying to make my voice be more heard, go to marches, and more creative stuff, definitely!”
