Art of Giving Foundation, in partnership with ArtSchool 8, is giving young local artists the opportunity to have their work featured at our “Igniting Change” fundraiser on August 24, where we will be raising money for Chicago public art programs. This is a unique opportunity for aspiring young artists in grades 1 through 5 to have their artwork appear in one of Chicago’s most prominent art galleries.  The deadline for student submissions is August 1, 2019.
