PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — In this week’s KD Sunday Spotlight, a local art teacher shows her students that art is more than just a pretty picture.
In 2019, Megan Glass hosted her first “Paws for Art Show” at Mercer Elementary School to raise money for the Shenango Valley Animal Shelter.

Glass said the theme is cats and dogs, and students in Kindergarten through 6th grade create artworks ranging from drawings to collages to portraits of the animals in the shelter.
Then, parents and community members attending the art exhibit can buy one of the creations, and all proceeds go to the animal shelter.

Glass said they just held their second in-person art show because of the pandemic.
She is happy to say that they have raised more than $4,000 and donated 100 items to the animal shelter for the 100th day of school.
Mrs. Glass hopes students will learn the importance of painting those paws for a good cause, and this creative idea encourages other art teachers to follow her example.
