Youth Art Auction

From February through April, Unity staff and volunteer Art Chair, Majella Pinto hosted art workshops for foster children and at-risk youth of all ages.  

Over 50 pieces are selected to be displayed and auctioned off during the annual gala. Many of the pieces give a personal look inside the lives, hearts and minds of our community's most vulnerable youth. We hope you are inspired.

Majella is proud to present this painting that she created with a little help from Unity Care's youth.

Collaborative Art Piece: Freedom, $4,320 Value

Description: A bird in flight is a symbol for freedom, liberation and strength.  This painting represents the mind soaring high to fulfill the dreams that are meant to be, leaving behind the bondage of self-doubt.

Youth Art Piece, The Shoulder, by Danielle, age 14

"My inspiration for this painting came from social media, where I found someone who paints about social diversity and confidence in young women. That is what I tried to capture in this. I didn’t want to make the body perfect, which is what some girls look up to. Someday, I want to be one of many voices for that cause, giving girls something realistic to motivate themselves and be happy in their own skin.”
