Siege enjoys sharing his knowledge with the community and giving back whenever possible.
One of his goals for Revival Art is to hold monthly art nights where a small group of people can come together and learn different techniques. Some events might include sketching of still life, painting a self-portrait, oil painting for beginners, etc. He would like to focus on sharing his knowledge with the community and especially children.
Many of these events would be focused on the younger generations-offering them the support of their passion for art that Siege wished he had as a young man. Recently, RAC hosted art teacher, Tricia Wang, and 12 teens for a 5-week drawing class. The students showed incredible talent despite the fact that they were not offered any type of art education in school. They showed great improvement in just 5 weeks and are hoping to come back for a second series of lessons this summer!
Siege has donated his art for several charitable causes including ‘Come Hell or High Water’-a fundraiser supporting a 28 year old girl suffering from stage 4 ovarian cancer, ‘A Cut for A Cause’-raising money for a hairstylist who has been living and working in Phoenix his entire life and was fighting a relapse of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, & ‘Wild at Heart’ an art auction to raise money for a local organization who rescue & rehabilitate birds of prey.
Currently, Siege is preparing to involve himself in events associated with the Contemporary Forum to help raise money for the Phoenix Art Museum and is also volunteering his time teaching students the art of watercolor painting during the summer program at New Covenant Preschool and Kindergarten in Scottsdale.
