We are still in shock! In the midst of testing the website, sorting out bugs, publishing the shop to our Facebook page, editing products, having a meeting for the next big addition to the site; we had our very first sale! And to make things even better it was a sale for our Charity!
A big thank you to Mr. Tshebo Mokoena, a Board member of the Johannesburg Children’s Home from the charity we support for the purchase of the artwork “Blue Bottle”, done by 18-year old Mphumi with Acrylic on stretched canvas.
In a plight to help the Johannesburg Children’s Home run the place as well as they do, OnlineArt.Gallery has offered to help them with their fundraising, by selling the wonderful artwork done by the children in the home, on our website.
Art is therapeutic and has been recognised as a form of therapy for many years. Classes are available at the home for the children to participate in and that is where they created these colourful works. Not everyone has a talent, but that is not important – it is the healing that is brought about, the sheer fun and enjoyment of painting, and seeing your final result.
You will see options on the prices of the children’s original artwork. Choose an amount you want to donate as price for the purchase of the artwork.
There is no commission so the whole amount you pay for the artwork will go to the Children’s Home, excluding shipping if local pickup is not selected. All proceeds from the sales will assist them in making fun, healing activities available for the children in their care. Please support this worthy cause by also buying their art.
