In 2008, Kids & Art Foundation was hosted at Pixar Studios for its very first workshop. In 2018, our 10th Anniversary year, we are super excited to return to Pixar for another exciting, art-filled workshop!
Thank you Pixar Studios for beliving in our mission to heal pedaitric cancer through art. Thank you to all of the hosts, over the past 10 years, who have supported us!
Kids & Art participants are getting ready for another unforgetable experience at Pixar. The kids/AYA are being paired with artists to create art inspired by the theme "Be Incredible". The professionals, practicing Bay Area artists, will be working alongside youth artists to create lasting memories and "Incredible" art. Our professional artists will be encouraged to create a piece inspired by the kids/AYA art. Artwork by both the professional and youth artists will then be displayed side-by-side at a Kids & Art exhibit at a later date.
When: Sunday, Sept 16th, 2018, 2-5pm
Where: Pixar Studios, 1200 Park Ave, Emeryville,
The workshop will be held in the art room, in the building behind the main Pixar campus on Hollis Street. Directions will be sent to registered attendees. All registered attendees will have to abide by strict Pixar campus rules.

MESSAGE FOR ARTISTS: Thank you for volunteering with us for this workshop. This is a wonderful opportunity for our kids to create with you on a more individual level. You can bring in a simple or complicated project. You will be paired with 2-3 kids to create art together. Feel free to bring in some of your work to show the child/teen, or just talk about the project you have designed. In the past, we have done printmaking, coffee stain art, acrylic painting, mixed media, clay, and quilting, just to name a few.
For this particular workshop, we are asking our artists to be inspired by the children and to create a piece of art based on their experience of creating together. We will be hosting a special art show where the artist and the child/teen pieces will be paired together for exhibition.
MESSAGE FOR VOLUNTEERS: You will help with set up and clean up. You will assist all the artists and clean brushes or change water or work with a younger child if they need help. We will guide you.
