How Can I Support Children’s Art Education?


What is Karnevale?

Karnevale is a fun-filled evening with an annual theme.  Through ticket sales and sponsorship, we raise funds for our Children’s Education Department. The funds generated by Karnevale support:

• Camps
• Studio Saturday
• Classes
• Field Trips both on and off location
• Virtual Tours
• Region 9 Distance Learning
• “Camp on the Go” for regional non-profits

Who is served by Karnevale?

Just some of the FREE activities and events that Karnevale supported in 2018:

•Camp on the Go: 630 kids in 14 camps
•Studio Saturday: average attendance 20 people per session
•Virtual Classroom: over 1000 students, 24 classrooms, 16 schools weekly

In addition, The Kemp provides monthly Virtual Tour field trips in conjunction with Region 9. These live-action, fully interactive virtual tours allow kids throughout the region to participate in fields trips they otherwise wouldn’t have an opportunity to experience. Kids can ask questions of the presenters during the tours via video feed and the entire tour is recorded for viewing by classes that didn’t have an opportunity to participate in the live-action experience.
