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.
