Original Artist Statement in French (La Paix Et L'amour)

Mon bien simple est la paix et l'amour parce que j'aime vivre dans la paix. Mon bien simple a été inspiré par l'art parce que j'aime peidre. J'ai représenté mon bien simple dans mes œuvres d'art par en peigmant un symbol. J'ai l'intention d'utiliser mon sens de bien simple pour améliorer ma communauté et changer le monde par la paix parce que c'est bien d'etre en paix. C'est important pour moi parce que le fais de vivre les gens heureux me rond aussi heureux. Une bonne question simple que vous poseriez aux autres est : Pourquoi les gens m'aime pas faire la paix?

English Translation (Love and Peace) 

My simple good is peace and love because I like to live in peace. My simple good was inspired by art because I love to paint. I have represented my simple good in
my artwork by painting a symbol. I intend to use my meaning of simple good to improve my community and change the world through peace because it is good to be at peace. It's important for me because having happy people makes me happy too. A good simple question you would ask others is: Why don't people like me to make peace?

This "Small Beautiful Moments" Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Jazleen C., from Wicker Park. Check out her meaning of #thesimplegood below!

My 'simple good' was inspired by small beautiful moments. I took it when I was walking with my Grandma and 7 dogs. Even with the chaos (I am sure you are imagining by walking 7 dogs), I saw this sunset and wanted to capture the moment. I plan on using my meaning of the simple good to improve my community and change the world by pausing to know that it's important to see beautiful things, even when things a busy!

This "Beauty In Everything" Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Precious D., from Hyde Park. Check out her meaning of #thesimplegood below!

My ‘simple good’ is to find the beauty in everything because it allows us to appreciate the little things. My ‘simple good’ was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend about the importance of keeping a positive mindset and finding beauty in all situations. I depicted my ‘simple good’ in my art by making the picture focus on the beauty in the photo. I wanted the picture to seem a little more dramatic and make the flowers pop more as that’s the beauty that came out of the photo for me. I plan on using my meaning of the ‘simple good’ to improve my community and change the world by teaching and showing others to always find the beauty in things even in a world of negativity. This is important to me because nowadays there is so much negativity and a lot of the time we try to sit and dwell on things we can’t change. Instead we can find the good or beauty of a situation even when it doesn’t work in our favor.

This “Inner Peace" Tee is inspired by TSG Youth Ambassador, Kimberlyn B.  from Kilbourn Park. Check out her meaning of #thesimplegood below!

My simple good is inner peace. It is very important to take time to care for ourselves and nature can play a big role in our life to get peace. My 'simple good' was inspired by a rainy and gloomy day. I showed my simple good to show the refreshment a picture of nature can give you just by looking at it. This is important to me because when I am overwhelmed or stressed out I go out for a walk. I sometimes try to appreciate those quiet moments especially when my house tends to be very loud most of the time. I plan on using my meaning of the simple good to improve our community by reminding everyone that taking a break is not being lazy, it's self love. A simple good question I would ask others is: Where do you find your inner peace?

HISTORY OF THE SIMPLE GOOD ART ACTIVITY BOOK BELOW:The first Simple Good SEL-based Art Activity Book (2020 launch) is a beautiful tool of hope that emerged during the pandemic as we realized that many of our communities did not have access to the internet to participate in our virtual programs. In response to the drastic inequities in mental health and education access in Chicago, we collaborated with artists from around the world to create a physical book with our SEL and Mindfulness-based curriculum. Within the first year of publishing we received 3,000 book requests from schools across Chicago. Today, The Simple Good's SEL-Based Art Activity Books (2020) continues to be used in the classrooms and by adults alike!

More Information on the TSG Art Activity Book below:

Since the COVID-19 Pandemic hit our communities, it has exacerbated inequities that have always existed in Chicago. As schools began shutting down and curriculum quickly shifted online, unequal access to internet and technology became a drastic problem, leaving over one-third of students with no access to education or mental health support in low-income communities.

In addition, the pandemic has intensified the mental health crisis which will affect generations to come. In response to this crisis, TSG developed our first Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Based Art Activity Book to support the well-being and mental health of our youth without internet access.

The TSG Art Activity Book synthesizes TSG's SEL-Based Art Curriculum into a printed Art Activity & Coloring Book focused on developing a student's understanding of what the 'simple good' means to them through influences of artists from all around the world. The students will take a journey of identifying positivity in their lives and their communities, developing an understanding of how they can use their 'simple goods' to change the world. The book will feature pages from incredible artists from all over the globe including Alice Pasquini (Italy), Oak Oak (France), Stinkfish (Colombia), Ivan Vazquez (Chicago), Richard Colman (San Francisco) and more!

Our Limited Edition TSG x Kayla Mahaffey x Chicago Bulls collab t-shirt was created for our 8th Annual Hunt for Good Fundraiser to support TSG Mindfulness-based Youth Art Programs. 

Artwork by Nationally renown Chicago-based Artist, Kayla Mahaffey. Kayla's design has a fiery vigor to it, to represent the determination it takes to play the game of basketball. Her artworks illustrate a transitional period of overcoming hardships and finding new life pathways. Her design for this t-shirt borrows from that idea, by keeping 'simple good' themes like imagination, determination, growth and resilience alive.

All proceeds go towards TSG Social Emotional Learning based Youth Art Residency Programs to empower and embolden the possibility of our youth to become positive activists to change our world.
