Project Description

Dolphin Project

On behalf of the students and their families at Beyond Brush Arts, $1,400 was raised, for Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project. The workshop was dedicated in honor of the Taiji Dolphins who lost their lives, families, and sold to dolphinariums to a life of slavery. Students painted wild dolphins while listening to ocean waves. clicks and whistles of wild dolphins, orcas, and whales. Passages from Ric O’Barry’s Behind the Dolphin Smile were read out loud by the instructor. All of the artists and their families are against captivity and the inhumane treatment of cetaceans. Paintings 1, 2, & 3 are for sale. All proceeds will go to Dolphin Project, plus doubled by an anonymous matching program.
