Contributed • Speaking • World Family Policy Center Banquet Speaker
After winning the World Family Policy Center's art contest with Guardians of the Family I was asked to speak at the banquet for the international delegation. My remarks were about the allegory and symbolism I designed into the painting I did. It was about the traditional family and the importance of each family member. Some of the diplomats, opinion leaders, and scholars were from UK, India, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden, Africa and they took home prints of the painting to their countries.

Shannon Christensen Speaking and Teaching Information
Teaching before small and large audiences has developed an easygoing style and enjoyment for teaching and working with children and adults. An institution's program should be fun as well as flexible to the needs of the group. It is designed with input from the association and insights from the artist so that the event receives a well defined, results driven plan. Fees and pricing are influenced by the designation of the organization and details of the outline. Approval by both parties is required before scheduling. All requests are reviewed.
