Are you a creative individual interested in sharing your

talent with children?

ShenArts is looking for visiting artists to lead our monthly activities. We bring in various artists so children can be exposed to all different media and artistic backgrounds. Artists are responsible for preparing the activity, coordinating their plans with us, and running the 90-minute activity that day. ShenArts provides a stipend for your time, as well as art supplies and adult volunteers to help the kids. 

Contact for more information.

Thank you to the generous donors that make Kids Art Club possible!
