Artscool At Caimede is organizing an “Artshow” at Hennessey’s Irish Pub on Nov. 30. The sale of cool and colorful artwork benefits the government-run shelter and its young inhabitants.

Behind these efforts is a veritable Who’s Who of good people and organizations who are making these charitable projects happen.

At Caimede DIF, the Artscool program embraces the artistic needs of children of various ages. The art program reaches dozens of children in the shelter, as well as adults who are living with moderate to severe challenges.

Some projects require the use of chalk, beads, paints and textiles, and donations of art supplies are always appreciated.

Kimberly Davin-De Graff is the administrator of the Artscool program under the umbrella of Yucatan Giving. The creative director, Cy Bor, is a talented artist with years of experience teaching children in various art classes. In addition, there are trained bilingual volunteers who assist monthly.
