As we continue to process the news that unfolds around us, we know that these unprecedented times are heavy with emotion and uncertainty. With greater reason, our Arteza community must know that we stand in solidarity with you and with those that seek justice and reform.
I share with you some thoughts and ideas that I hope to be uplifting and perhaps inspire change. There are a few things I know to be true. I know that we are a company that values the notion of being a good human, always. I know that Arteza will continue to prioritize its actions in the service of our creator community. I know that our mission and purpose as a company has created an incredibly inclusive community of artists that can bring change to the world. I know that we value celebrating everyone by providing tools to express their innermost feelings and shine a light on those tough societal things that are sometimes hard to express. I know that I am proud of the work we do in providing a platform for our community to express themselves and inspire us to enact change.
Arteza will be donating to Smoke Signals Studio, Laundromat Project, and Groundswell, all community-based organizations who share a common mission of bringing together youth, artists, and community organizations to use art as a tool for social change.
We need you now more than ever to use your art to bring forth change. As creators, you are the repository of society's collective memory. All weekend long we will be sharing artists who inspire us across our social platforms. So please, lift your pen, pencil, paintbrush, marker, or even a knitting needle, and inspire us all.
CEO, Arteza Art Supplies
