BALTIMORE — Artwork made by students at 12 schools from Baltimore City is now on display at the Gallery at Harborplace in downtown Baltimore.
It's part of the Kindness for Paws art show, which benefits the Maryland SPCA.
The students were given photos of pets adopted through the shelter and created a portrait using different mediums.
This is the first year the Maryland SPCA has held the art show in Baltimore.
"We did this because we really want children to have the opportunity to show their love for animals, specifically animals that have been adopted from our shelter," said Katie Flory, the community relations director at the Maryland SPCA.
The art will go up for sale on Sunday February 9 from 12-3 p.m. for a suggested donation of $5 or more.
A second Kindness for Paws art show will start on February 8 at the White Marsh Mall and the sale will be February 16 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The artwork featured in that show is from students at 35 schools around Baltimore County.
