Adopt an Easel

Just as symphony orchestras often designate chairs for principal musicians, the Shemer Art Center is looking for supporters who would like to have an easel named for them, or would like to name an easel in honor of a special friend, family member, fellow student or cherished instructor.

Your $150 donation includes a one-year Supporter membership to the Shemer Art Center, which you can designate to a friend or family member if you are already a member, plus a plaque on one of our classroom easels that recognizes the person for whom the easel is adopted.  Your adoption of an easel will help us continue providing the high-quality classes our valuable students deserve.  In return, you will have the opportunity to leave a loving and lasting legacy.

Please consider adopting an easel today. It’s fun and easy!

We only have six easels left to adopt, so let us know your interest today!

NOTE: Be sure to include the name for the plaque in Paypal’s “special instructions” area as you check out.
