From our Teaching Artist workshops and general celebrations of our Young Artists and our programming, there is never a dull moment with ArtWorks!
Thank you so much to Startist Art Club for putting together a fundraiser to benefit our Young Artists! We are so grateful for your support!
Last week, Artworks and Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine held a graffiti and beat boxing workshop with our Teaching Artist YAKO 440 Volunteers Katherine and Lisa, and our new Board member, Philip Michael!
What better way to celebrate dance than a flash mob? How will you express yourself this 2017?!
Today, December 20th, we are honored to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Michael Harris. We cannot think of a better way than to share this amazing documentary of his story, which was created by our founder, Daniela Mendelsohn and Keren Greenberg of docyourstory. Dr. Harris is not only on the ArtWorks Advisory Council, but was an important contributing member to the creation of ArtWorks. Over the past 15 years, he has helped ArtWorks serve over 75,000 children facing chronic and life-limiting illness. “Beyond Medicine” is a documentary that highlights Dr. Harris’s 40 years of dedication to the field of pediatric hematology oncology. Thank you Dr. Harris so much for your commitment and all that you do to help ArtWorks further its mission. Happy Birthday!!
Over and over again, ArtWorks sees that it is never too early to begin a practice of philanthropy, and sometimes our youngest donors are the most generous of all!
On August 30, 2016, The Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center was gifted with a fully sponsored ArtWorks Art Cart through the generous fundraising campaign led by Sarah Rabitz! In honor of her Bat Mitzvah, Sarah launched the HELP PUT THE “MITZVAH” IN SARAH’S BAT MITZVAH campaign to raise $5000 to go towards placing a new art cart at one of ArtWorks’ partner hospitals, and filling it with amazing art supplies for our participants. The campaign raised OVER $5000, and Sarah, along with her family, continues to support ArtWorks and our mission!
Sarah, a budding artist and philanthropist, also created artwork for the Art Cart Launch (and a number of other ArtWorks events) to give out to our Young Artists! We are excited to see Sarah’s spirit of giving and creativity continue to grow!
ArtWorks was founded with the help of generous hearts and continues to excel with the generosity of the growing ArtWorks community!
On June 29, ArtWorks launched a brand new Art Cart through our Surprise!Supplies program in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Hackensack University Medical Center. The launch was made possible through the generous donation and commitment from the Gribetz family who sponsored the art cart in memory of their friend Evan Levy.

We are always thankful for our generous community!
