From our Teaching Artist workshops and general celebrations of our Young Artists and our programming, there is never a dull moment with ArtWorks!
Among the 25 hospital partners and agencies who participated in this year’s Express Yourself included Snow City Arts in Chicago, Illinois and Kids and Art Foundation in Burlingame, California. Our exhibition featured Luis’ piece entitled “Red Ship” and Navaeh’s “The Sun Also Rises”. We are looking forward to many more exciting collaborations in the future! #ArtWorksKids #LetArtHeal
As Express Yourself 2019 comes to an end, we want to take the time to thank all of our amazing framing partners who provide custom-framing for all of the works on display. This year’s #FrameOfMind highlights Michael Fitzsimmons and his team at Westwood Gallery, Framed Image in Pompton Plains, NJ, Jacklyn Kling Distinctive Framework in Montclair, NJ, and Andrea’s Custom Framing in Ramsey, NJ. Thank you so much for your hard work, time and dedication to the #ArtWorksKids. We couldn’t do this without you!
We can’t wait to see you THIS Sunday at the NYU Kimmel Center from 1:30 – 5:00 PM for an unforgettable day! Today, we are pleased to feature “Growing Up” by the Residents of Riverside Park from Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center. “These are the hands and feet of the growing children of Riverside Park. It’s so beautiful to watch them grow and document their process,” says Child Life Specialist, Caroline Mason. #ExpressYourself2019 #ArtWorksKids
For their 5th birthday, Elena and Parker wanted to share their love of art with the ArtWorks Kids so they asked their friends and family for donations of art supplies instead of presents. Their supply drive was a HUGE success and this week they delivered a box filled with over 100 small craft kits, paint sets and other amazing gifts. We are inspired and grateful for their generosity. #LetArtHeal
This week, we brought the ArtWorks Surprise Supplies Program to the children and families at Inova Children’s Hospital in Annandale, Virginia! If you know of a children’s hospital or healthcare facility in need of art supplies, please reach out to us. We always welcome the opportunity to bring ArtWorks to Young Artists who use their creativity as a a vehicle for healing, communication, self-expression and personal development.
The Young Artists at Blythedale Children’s Hospital have come together and decorated over 100 feathers each with its own distinct markings and textures. Thank you to the amazing Child Life Specialists at Blythedale who facilitated this brilliant creation, we are so excited to soar through the NYU Kimmel Center on Sunday November 10th!
ArtWorks Teaching Artist, Robyn Ellenbogen joined Children’s Specialized Hospital in Tom’s River at their monthly Friday Night Fever event.
ArtWorks Partner, Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital, highlighted their extraordinary #ChildLifeSpecialists and the incredible ways they help children and their families cope during a hospital stay through play, music and art. “Familiar and fun activities can normalize the hospital experience, make it less scary, and help kids be kids,” says Chris Brown, Director of Therapeutic Recreation, Child Life, and Creative Arts Therapies Department.
