We hope you will join us for our 4th Annual How to Draw a Lion Art Auction! This year our auction will be online, which means anyone, anywhere will be able to participate!

Bidding opens on September 24th at 6:00am and will be open until October 3rd at 8:00pm. Please plan to join us October 3rd at 7:00pm for a special LIVE virtual event, as we close out the auction with some special guests and exciting news from Rapha Community Center! Learn more in our Facebook Event.

The paintings are even more incredible this year! We’re so excited for you to see the masterpieces created by the students at Rapha Community Center. Each painting was created during an art class this past March. The class was taught by our very own alum, Samuel Kinuya, who is now the Director of Kenyan Operations for How to Draw a Lion. He is such an inspiring role model for our current students. 100% of the proceeds of this auction will support the children at Rapha Community Center, our children’s home and secondary school in rural Kenya.

Registration is open, so be sure to sign up so you’re ready to start bidding on 9/24! Sign up on the How to Draw a Lion auction page today.
