April Khalil Artistry




$25,000 small business loan

In 2018, April Khalil opened SmARTivities in the Circle in Downtown Easton, bringing an art supply store that offers much more than paint and paper. April’s mission is to ignite creativity in all ages, providing a hub of inspiration through classes and workshops for kids and adults in sketching, painting, pottery, and more.

The Rising Tide Community Loan Fund provided April Khalil Artistry with a $25,000 loan to expand inventory, purchase new equipment, and support the store’s enrichment programs.
