Special Needs Community Support - Special Art Sundays
Filiflavors and Pili & Blu are Filipina immigrant-owned businesses that provide accessibility to Filipino food products and handcrafted items made in the Philippines. A portion of our sales benefits a couple of nonprofits based in the Bay Area that support people with special needs. This is a tribute to our founder’s brother who is on the Autism spectrum.
We know that it can be tough and expensive to send someone to classes and workshops. As part of our commitment to further support the Autism community and other special needs communities, we're hosting "Special Art Sundays", a free and inclusive virtual art class for people with special needs. Classes will be held on second Sundays of the month from 1-2PM PST.
The virtual classes will be taught by Alan Perkins, he is a painter/musician-songwriter based in San Francisco, specializing in neoclassic, photorealistic, and textured abstract paintings. He is also an experienced art teacher for people with special needs.
We will be sponsoring the classes but you're free to directly Venmo Teacher Al if you'd like to give him any additional donations. This is completely optional.
Who can attend:
All abilities and ages are welcome. You may bring someone to assist you or if you're assisting someone who would like to attend, we'd be happy to have both of you there.
