4th Annual Silent Art Auction
Art + Action + Auction
The CDS Visual Arts program would like to invite you to participate in our upcoming Silent Art Auction in March! For the last four years CDS students in the First Program, Middle School, and High School have donated pieces of artwork to be sold to raise funds for a charitable cause. Last year we raised over ₩1,099,000 collectively for charity!
This year all proceeds from the auction will be donated to “TNKR” (T each North Korean Refugees) in Seoul. TNKR is “...a nonprofit organization that aims to assist North Korean refugees in preparing for their future and transitioning to life outside of North Korea by providing them with free English learning opportunities.”
Donating work to the Silent Art Auction is a fantastic opportunity to not only showcase your skills, but to utilize those skills in a way that will impact and improve the lives of others.
Q: What kind of artwork can be submitted?
A: You can submit any 2D artwork that you have created in the last two years! These can be work from CDS, artwork created at home and in your free time, etc... Preference is given to 2D pieces (drawings, paintings, collage, photographs, reliefs, etc...)
Q: Do I need to do anything special to the artwork before donating it?
