Metal Art Program
The RAW Haiti Metal Art Program aims to increase the capacity of local artists to reach international markets while sharing the beauty and pride of Haitian artwork. The metal artisans live in a village among other artists who have been making metal sculptures for generations. These particular artists were selected because they are passionate and aspiring. There are about four men working together in their shop. Each artist brings his own special skills to create each piece.
Sculptures start with a recycled drum. Every step is done by hand, starting with disassembling the steel drum and drawing the design on the raw metal. It is then carefully cut by hammer, shaped, polished, painted, and sealed to create a beautiful sculpture. Custom pieces are available and amazing.
This fundraising program helps the metal artists by purchasing large amounts of their art work. Remaining proceeds go directly to RAW Haiti Youth Development Programs for Children in Haiti.
RAW Haiti is always focused on having positive and collaborative non-profit business dealings. Both branches of the organization focus on the development of Haiti youth. The metal artists are proud that the profits that RAW Haiti obtains from the trading branch goes to supporting the youth programs in Haiti. The artists are also proud that their business helps them, their families, and people in their community through their growth in business over time.
