Art is a crucial part of companies like Knockaround and plays a significant role in our daily surroundings. That is why it is so important for us to show young people the artistic career opportunities available to them in the future.
Class Acts is part of Knockaround's ongoing campaign that aims to donate money, resources, and art supplies to local, underfunded elementary schools. Every year we visit 4th and 5th-grade students to talk about the importance of art and then give them an opportunity to design their own special pair of sunglasses.
Last year we selected three winning designs to produce and sell on Knockaround.com as our annual pair of Class Acts sunglasses. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these sunglasses will be donated to our charitable partner, ArtReach, a non-profit organization that connects practicing artists with students at local elementary schools with limited resources for art education.
