Two Stars and a Wish 2019-12-03T10:52:33-07:00

KAC Teaching Artist, Carl Clausen often asks his students

to reflect on their work by finding two stars and a wish.

It’s a way of celebrating what they love about their work while also focusing on growth and progress. This holiday season, let’s celebrate all the things we love about KAC and turn our wishes for the future into action.

Give the gift of art, community, and connection. Give two stars and a wish.

  • $85 keeps one student’s tuition affordable

  • $127 helps sustain the historic Peter Kirk Building, KAC’s 127 year old home

  • $385 provides one youth scholarship

  • $510 provides supplies for one quarter of KAC’s after-school program

  • $1175 supports one exhibition in the KAC gallery


Make a gift, then tell us your 2 stars!
