The Traveling Painting 

An international collaborative project between 5 emerging artists who will make one unique work of art for an auction to benefit a charity. 

The money raised by the auction of the original painting will be donated to the International Child Art Foundation. 

The ICAF Mission is to enhance academic performance and imbue global citizenship by nurturing children's creativity and developing their empathy.

Find more information on the International Child Art Foundation here:

The 5 artists will share one sheet of paper to create a painting. After an artist finishes and documents their "layer"; they ship the paper to the following artist. It's up to the next artist to either cover the previous work or to integrate the previous layers into their creation. 

The artists and their Instagram accounts are:

Graceina Samosir : @graceinasamosir
Justin Pastores : @j_pastores
Juan Franco: @franco1323
Mauro C. Martinez :   @ztm_oruam
Hector Acuna :

Follow the painting and the group on our Instagram account @thetravelingpainting 

The watercolor paper is 10" x 10" and will be framed before auction.

A total of 25 archival prints (5 from each artist's work) will be sold after the auction. Details on how/where to buy prints are TBD. The profits from the prints will be given to the emerging artists.

As a group of emerging artists who are interested in a supporting the future of young artists; we're asking for donations to cover the costs of:

National and International Shipping between artists
Framing of the Final Painting
Giclee Printing of 25 (12" x 12") Prints

The timeline of The Traveling Painting is undecided. Each artist will be given a limited amount of time to create their artwork before shipping to the next. Once the first artist has shipped the painting, we will have an estimate on when the auction will occur. Please give the group a 2-3 weeks from January 1st 2017 to finalize the timeline. Donations will be accepted from now until the final painting has been shipped after auction. Please help us reach our goal by sharing our page, thank you.
