Please join us for the 6th Annual How to Draw a Lion online art auction featuring 20 original paintings created by the children at Rapha Community Center. Bidding opens November 29th at 8:00am and closes on December 4th at 8:00pm just in time for holiday gift giving!

The paintings continue to improve each year and we’re excited to share the masterpieces created this year! Each painting was created during an art class this past summer. 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 11/29! Sign up on the How to Draw a Lion auction page today.
