On Friday, September 13, 2013, We Care Arts will hold a silent Skateboard Art Auction to benefit their unique programs and facilities that aid the disabled through the power of art. Each skateboard deck will be custom decorated by local and national tattoo artists, auctioned off to the public both online and at the WCA facilities. All proceeds will be donated to a local school in Kettering, OH that uses art to heal people of all ages with their various disabilities.

We Care Arts is a non-profit organization based out of Kettering, Ohio that aims to provide manual art therapy to people with mental, emotional and physical disabilities. Through art classes, workshops, and fundraisers, WCA simultaneously promotes local and national artists, and enhances the skill set, self esteem, focus and confidence of those that may have been hindered by disabilities, promoting their individuality.
Fostering a creative and educational environment, WCA volunteers provide extensive training in painting, pottery, computer/graphic design, jewelry making as well as a plethora of other mediums. Participating artists are empowered through the creation and sale of their hand crafted works of art, taking steps back into mainstream society; proceeds are split between the artist and program funding.
