Painting for a Purpose 
November 24, 2014

Tina Edwards and Jane Ellis founded “Painting for a Purpose” to bring people together to create hand-painted whimsical furniture.The furniture is then auctioned off during their annual event with the proceeds going to fund and support youth-led service learning grants for Portland Public Schools students.

Over the past four years, Painting for a Purpose has provided more than $14,000 to fund over 25 youth-led service learning projects.  Within the last year, they were able to fund six grants.

This year’s annual auction was held on Thursday, November 13th.  The items for auction consisted of 40 clocks that were made by the carpentry class at PATHS, the Portland Public Schools’ Portland Arts and Technology High School, in a project called CLOCKS! It’s about Time!

Students from PATHS woodworking class also created wooden fish painted by the Portland High School Art Club.  In addition, the auction featured about fifty other wooden items such as candlesticks, stools, tables and pepper mills.

Kudos to all for making this event a huge success!

Art is the creation of an artist who desires to communicate together with his piece of work. a person studies a robust emotional response while he appears in the art, his or her reaction may be satisfied, gloomy, serene or energize. it is able to take our creativeness to this kind of size which is past each day scope. It helps in developing critical thinking skills, influences decisions and choices, therefore, plays a significant role in business.

Do a lot of people paint for a purpose? I don't think so that's true, at all. Most of the painters just have a passion of painting and they try their best to chase that passion. Everyone should respect the attempts of these people.
