Young Artist Donates Painting to C.A.R.E.

Artist Elmi Ventura Mata recently presented his original oil painting, “The People Tree,” to Community Action Reaches Everyone (C.A.R.E.), a non-profit organization based in Edison, NJ.   The primary goal for C.A.R.E. is to reduce the socio-economic and emotional barriers affecting students in our schools. 

It all comes full circle.  C.A.R.E. awarded Mata a textbook grant getting him started in his bachelor’s of fine arts education at The Cleveland Institute of Art in Ohio in 2012.  Today, Mata is a second-year Gund Scholar at The Cleveland Institute of Art.
