Watch as Vincent Smith (U-Mich RB) hosts fun creative art classes in Pahokee, Fl.
Vincent Smith Presents -
C2C - Painting Fun Day (pilot)
Watch our Pilot Art Day for our Creative Arts Programing.
Vincent Smith teaches basic painting skills to the youth of Pahokee, FL. Watch our first project as we create a series of 14 paintings during our pilot.
- Participants in the C2C Painting Fun Day learn new painting skills and create signage to be used in the H.O.P.E. Community Garden.
- The signage will include the plants and bed names #EATING project backers chose. ( "Tacoplants", "Tae block for Lace vs WMU 2009" and plots named "The Team", "Uncle Ray Kehew Lives On", "Legel Food", "Marie Farah" and MORE)
- C2C Project Backers can choose from art rewards for this event so those backers who can't make it in person can have something commemorative from the event.
We believe a positive environment with fun and creativity results in well balanced community members.
Why: We wanted to continue connecting the U of M community and the Pahokee, Fl community and we thought this was a interesting way to accomplish that goal.
Over 3.5 million people watched CLOWNEY vs. SMITH - BOWL GAME so we thought a few thousand might be interested in what I am doing off field too.
About this Pilot: We wanted to give the kids in Pahokee, FL the ability to be creative and to inspire them in a positive way. Also we want to let them know they can reach their dreams and it just takes hard work and dedication. We thought that encouraging creativity would be a positive way for kids to prepare for a successful future.
TL;DR VIncent Smith played football for U of M and paints. He's teaching art skills to kids from his hometown. Get a wristband and watch the digital download when it comes out.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The greatest challenge we can anticipate is delays due to potential scheduling conflicts. I am training for the NFL over the next few months so we will have to pay extra attention in picking the day in advance so it works with my schedule.
At the end of this Kickstarter you will receive a survey requesting your delivery address and specifics about your reward. After we collect and process the surveys, you reward will be mailed out to you.
