Max began exploring his artistic abilities in January 2021. After his schoolteacher, Mr. B introduced him to art tutorials on YouTube, he began practicing regularly. After a few months of watching tutorials, Max has started leaning into his own art style.
Max uses acrylic, pastels, and his favourite – watercolours in his paintings. Max loves making up new characters and painting self-portraits with people in his life he loves and draws on inspiration from Picasso in his art.
Max has become a veteran at raising money for the Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada. He continues to use his talents to support children and families involved in child welfare.
Max hosted an art auction in October 2021 in support of children and youth involved in Canada’s child welfare system.
Thank you so much for everyone who supported Max’s first art auction! Together we can change lives.
On Thursday, February, 16th 2023 , Max Keys hosted a fundraiser for Save the Children to support children affected by the Türkiye and Syria earthquakes with a 30 minute Instagram LIVE concert.
With freezing temperatures, Save the Children is racing to reach tens of thousands of children with emergency kits, including blankets, sleeping bags and winter clothing, as well as food, water, heaters and baby supplies.
Max has set a goal to raise $10,000 with the help of all of you! Thank you to everyone who tuned in and donated. Donate today below!
