Call to Artists:
The Learning Tree

 
The Learning Tree is looking for local artists to work with their children to create original artwork for the silent auction at their gala “A Night at the Races” on May 3rd. The Learning Tree provides educational and residential services to more than 100 children and adolescents in the Mobile area with developmental disabilities, including autism. The children range in age from 2 1⁄2 to 21. They have a preschool, residential school and day school for children with autism.

The art created could encompass any medium and each artist would have the entire staff to assist them. The Learning Tree will provide materials and are hoping an artist will create the concept, have the students make them, and then come back and add finishing touches if needed. The children are available from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM on Mondays - Fridays. Their residential kids would be available on weekends as well.

Please contact Teresa Atkins at 251-331-2633 if you are interested!
