The Art of Giving — Free Art Workshops


FREE ART WORKSHOPS!
Every Friday from July 27 – August 10 at The Tutoring Club of Santa Monica
Santa Monica, CA—School is out and summer is here! What are your children doing during summer vacation? Instead of sitting around, why not enroll your children in FREE ART WORKSHOPS! This summer, The Art of Giving Foundation will be hosting FREE art workshops, every Friday from July 27 through August 10, at the Tutoring Club of Santa Monica, located at 3122 Santa Monica Blvd, in Santa Monica. The camp will hold classes for ages 4 to 7 and 8 to 13!

Jill Myers, the owner of the Santa Monica Tutoring Club, believes strongly in the importance of teaching children at a young age, the importance of compassion and helping others, to promote peace and stop the current and harmful trends of bullying. For this reason, she has joined forces with The Art of Giving Foundation, to bring this compassion based curriculum into her practice.

The Art of Giving Foundation is a nonprofit organization that believes in the simple concept of Children Helping Children, while teaching children the importance of compassion and helping others. In the Art of Giving Camp, the children will create all forms of art, such as paintings, drawings, scarves, blankets, jewelry, etc., which will be sold to benefit another group of deserving children who are in extreme need! The funds raised will go to provide items such as clothing, shoes, hygiene supplies, vitamins, medical/dental supplies, and many other vital necessities, that many children of the world, including here in the United States, are not blessed with. Middle school and high school students who would like to volunteer are encouraged to apply for community service credit at their schools. A $10.00 donation is suggested per class, for participants to cover the foundation’s cost in supplies.
