Chouaieb Saidi, faculty member at The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur, a branch of The Art Institute of Atlanta, is one of 37 artists participating in Art Gone Wild at the Atlanta Zoo.  A featured event of Art Gone Wild was the first-annual Paint-out Week where Art Gone Wild artists transform blank canvases into zoo-inspired master pieces en plein air or “in the open air.”  Zoo Atlanta guests have the opportunity to watch the artists bring exotic animals, botanicals and scenery to life through various mediums including water color, oils paint, chalk and many more.  The art is then auctioned off in which 50% of the proceeds benefit Zoo Atlanta which makes this a rare and exciting opportunity to benefit the art and animal worlds simultaneously.
