KCPT Film about my foundation for teenage artists from the inner city. It's a segment from The Local Show.


The Leopold Gallery Charitable Foundation provides scholarship funds for students throughout the Kansas City area. It also funds art programs at Paseo Academy, Lincoln Prep Academy, and Sumner Academy, and any other schools that our board deems to be in need. 100% of all donations will go to these worthy programs. If desired, a donation can be made for a specific school.
.  Our foundation is sponsored by the Greater Kansas City Charitable Foundation.

“Paul has been our strongest source of community support and professional mentoring.  He has a genuine concern for our students and works hard to make a real difference in their lives.”  Pamela Sahl, Department Chair, Paseo Academy of Fine and Performing Arts.

“Paul acts on his deep regard for students who are economically disadvantaged, yet who have a wealth of potential in the arts and in our community.  He labors to help them achieve their dreams—and delivers.”  Mary Ann Sit, Department Chair, Sumner Academy of Arts and Science

Paul is also the author of Living the Artist’s Life.  This acclaimed guidebook for artists took him on a tour of 60 cities; he spoke at the Art Students League of New York, the Pacific Art League, dozens of bookstores, and on 35 National Public Radio affiliates.
