Supporting Local Artists

We also work with professional artists to help tell their stories to kids. In addition, we have a gallery of artwork available from these artists. As in any gallery, proceeds are split between the gallery and the artist. But when you buy art from us, all of the gallery’s profits are put back into our mission of educating children about art.
