Children learn in different ways. KID smART teaches through the arts to provide experiential instruction in academic subjects to reach all students in a classroom and allow children to connect to math, science, history, language arts, and a variety of other disciplines. “Cocktails for KID smART” raises 14 percent of KID smART’s annual budget, giving more than 3,000 New Orleans students their best chance for success.

This year’s theme was “Let Your Fancy Take Flight,” so KID smART teaching artist Renee Anderson led a craft table where attendees could make their own feather fascinators.

Sazerac Company provided signature cocktails. Joel Catering and Beth Biundo Sweets provided catering.

An original painting by Alex Beard, “The Wobbly Post,” was generously donated to KID smART and auctioned at the event. Ruthie Winston led the vibrant live auction.

Event Chairs and Board Members Kate and John Werner were in attendance, along with KID smART Co-Founders Campbell Hutchinson and Allison Stewart and several Creative School leaders and teaching artists. More than 250 patrons attended the event.
