What We Do

  • Donate paintings as auction items in support of local causes that share in our philosophy of improving community.
  • Outreach through collaborative community paintings, entitled "Community Hearts." Each painting is done with a community at local events to raise awareness for a cause. The painting is then finished by Amie and donated to the cause as a symbol of the communities love and support.
  • We provide hands on community outreach projects including our "Gospel Garden" at The Modesto Gospel Mission .
  • We donate 20% of proceeds from art work sold online to individual's local food bank.
  • We donate 20% of proceeds from purchased art work at our local events towards supporting farmers directly. We buy their produce at local farmers markets and then bring fresh foods to those in need at local shelters or food banks.
  • We strive to encourage others to create, nourish and give through our blog stories and recipes at "The Art to Feed"
  • Paint classes- encouraging memories and communication through collaborative paintings in this fun class- See list of upcoming events below!

“The Hungarian hunters of old pursued the miraculous Stag, not because they expected to kill it, but because it led them on in the joy of the chase to new trails and fresh adventures, and so to capture happiness. You may look on that White Stag as the pure spirit of Scouting, springing forward and upward, ever leading you onward and upward to leap over difficulties, to face new adventures in your active pursuit of the higher aims of Scouting—aims which bring you happiness.”
