Surf Art Kids, created by Hilton Alves, is a social project designed to expose children and youth to environmental awareness and foster in them a respect and love for the ocean through art. The initiative aims to bring marine art into the lives of the youth through social activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, live art exhibitions, community art projects, teaching painting techniques, teaching air brush techniques, drawing techniques, murals in schools, painting in hospitals and in organizations for special needs children and interactive community displays. “The project was developed because I wanted to broaden my horizons as a marine artist. This could spread my gift and put a little art and fun in the life of others “. – reports Hilton Alves.
