Automotive Ar ts Reception To Inspire Young Minds B Y C H R I S T I N A - L A U R E N P O L L A C K W hen children are inspired by enlight- ening ideas they often cultivate inter- ests that lead to careers and passions. To take a proactive approach to educating and empower- ing young people, Light + Shadow Fine Art is partnering with Fused Learning and Community Partnership for Youth (CPY). On August 18th from 4-8pm, Light + Shadow Fine Art will host a fundraising event to sell automotive artwork by world-renowned artist and Gallery Owner Thierry Thompson. Gallery Director Beverly Thompson says, "The money raised benefits CPY, [allowing] children to design and build their own solar-electric car." What's unique about this program is that "students get to hand-assemble a mini-replica of a hybrid car, and learn about hybrid technology, how electric motors work, design, aerodynam- ics, and the positive environmental impact of ultra-low emission technology." This project has been designed and pro- duced by Fused Learning, which has worked with school districts, nonprofits and clubs. According to Richard Tavener of Fused Learning, "CPY is an extraordinary organization serving youth for many years in the community and we're proud to join them in offering our educational programs." Light + Shadow Fine Art is located on 6th Avenue between Dolores and Lincoln in Carmel.

A benefit for children takes place August 18. 104 C A R M E L M A G A Z I N E • S U M M E R / F A L L 2 0 1 6 Photo: Kelli Uldall
