The event is an art exhibition for homeless people called homeless heARTs. As a maiden event, 30 homeless people have been chosen by Covenant House to participate in this art event. Artists Tunde Omotoye will paint portraits of homeless people. The paintings and prints of the paintings will be sold and all proceeds will go to Covenant House to Support the chosen homeless people.
Why should you sponsor?
Many homeless people feel forgotten and unwanted even though many people have supported them with cash and homes less shelter. This art event for the homeless seeks to make them fill cherished and wanted. Most importantly their portraits will beatify homes, office spaces and public spaces.
I am an artist living and working in Toronto. Having seen the amount of homeless people in Toronto, I would like to use my art and talent to give to them by painting colourful portraits that will be sold and all proceeds will go to Covenant House to Support those portraits have been painted.
