ARTEAMOR is a sister foundation to OSF, founded by Dilia Stein, the wife of Andy Stein, founder of OSF. ARTEAMOR provides quality art workshops to children of The Orphaned Starfish Foundation. Arts are an outlet, a way to share self-expression and heal the near devastation situations these children have overcome. A child who learns to dance, may open a dance school or become a dance teacher. One who learns music may become a professional DJ or a music producer.
