“Two Bicycles” art by eileen tomson
Kids on the Block/Stars Foundation is a non profit organization using puppetry and other teaching tools to promote understanding and acceptance of all children and adults regardless of their differences. Stars exists to serve schools and communities by providing prevention, intervention and treatment services addressing bullying, substance abuse, violence, and social and emotional barriers to success. My contribution to the charity auction, “Chairish the Kids” was a tricycle that I painted and designed like a garden.
The 13th annual Chair-ish the Kids Art Auction benefit features a live auction of one-of-a-kind chairs and chair-themed artwork, and a silent auction of additional artwork, gift packages and more. Proceeds support STARS Nashville program, Kids on the Block, which, through the use of puppets, educates students in Middle Tennessee about health and social concerns that affect their lives.
