Art Of Everyone Supports Save The Children Hurricane Relief Efforts
At Live Times Square Art Event
Public invited to paint large-scale, one-of-a-kind portraits following a laser light guided by an Artist Conductor; final pieces auctioned to help save lives ravaged by recent hurricanes
New York – September 25, 2017 – Art of Everyone, a crowd-sourced, live art experience, is supporting Save the Children with a donation from its “LASER GUIDED PAINTING” art event to benefit those suffering in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Art of Everyone will donate to Save the Children two large-scale paintings created at the event to take place at Anita's Way at 135 W. 42nd Street between 6th Ave and Broadway on Wednesday, September 27, 2017.
The free art event will take place from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. EST. The paintings are created in real-time under the direction of professional artists who "Conduct" the painter/participant using a laser pointer from the front of a 7’ x 5’-foot free-standing canvas – the participants do all the painting from one side, following the Artist Conductor's laser and verbal direction from the other side.

It truly is the art of everyone where artists and people of all ages collaborate to manifest creativity where art and technology are blended into a unique experience and now we’re doing it for a great cause.”

What/Why: One-of-a-kind charitable art creation event to benefit those suffering from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria

Art of Everyone is for people of all ages who want to express their creativity working directly with highly-skilled artists. Anyone and everyone can co-create fine art with no artistic skill required.
The Artist Conductor stands a few feet on one side of a large, freestanding canvas and begins outlining an image using just a laser pointer and a vivid imagination. Participants in turn stand on the other side of the canvas and begin applying paint by following the laser dot as it travels around the canvas. The paint sticks that the participants use push through the canvas creating a beautiful image. A few hours later, a work of art has been created by dozens of people of all ages - the Artist Conductor never touches the canvas.
“LASER GUIDED PAINTING” is a 4-hour live art event open to the general public. During this time, a total of two large-scale canvases, each measuring 7’ tall x 5' wide, will be created by participants under the direction of Art of Everyone Artist Conductors. A variety of artistic styles can be created, ranging from faces to figures and contemporary to pop art.
Art of Everyone will donate the two paintings created on September 27th to Save the Children to be auctioned; the money will go to help support the organization’s ongoing relief efforts for those still suffering in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
These three hurricanes are the only Category 4 Atlantic storms to ever hit the United States and its territories in the same year. According to AccuWeather, early estimates of the damage from Hurricane Irma and Harvey alone total $290 billion – nearly a quarter of the total costs of all-natural disasters in the U.S. from 1980 to this year.
