Joe Farmer

The City of Allen Joe Farmer Recreation Center is looking for an artist to conduct a one hour simple art class for individuals with disabilities such as  Down's Syndrome and Autism.

Here is the basic info on the class:

Title: Arts Galore
Promo: Come have fun and socialize with peers while creating all sorts of crafts. 
No prior experience needed. Just bring yourself and be prepared to have some fun!
Price: $20
Time: Tuesdays at 5:30-6:30PM
Min: 3 people Max:10 people

Artist will need to sign a contract with the City of Allen to provide this class at a 70/30 split. The charge for the class can but increased but they don't want to charge too much as these individuals do not have a lot of money. 
Caregivers or guardians will be asked to stay and assist with the art class if needed. The class would be as simple as painting a pot or using water colors or sketching out some pictures of animals. They would like the class to be held once a week for one hour each. 

Below is the contact information for the person heading up this program.
