From our Teaching Artist workshops and general celebrations of our Young Artists and our programming, there is never a dull moment with ArtWorks!
Last month, ArtWorks Teaching Artist Yako painted a healthy safety reminder at The Brooklyn Hospital Center and also got in the holiday spirit at St. Joseph’s Health!
Thank you so much for joining ArtWorks this #GivingTuesday! You made a difference and changed the lives of our Young Artists facing illness by providing them with opportunities to express themselves through the arts. We are so grateful to have friends like you as part of the ArtWorks family.
For the last few days, we learned about Rowan and her story of perseverance and hope. Next week is #GivingTuesday and we invite you to help us continue our mission to bring the healing power of the arts to Young Artists like Rowan. Please visit the link in our bio to support the #ArtWorksKids.
“I finally found somewhere I belong… that’s what ArtWorks brings to each and everyone of us.” Part III of Rowan’s story shares the community she built through her transformation from patient to dancer.
Yesterday, we met Rowan Zubi, ArtWorks Alum, and traveled with her as she shared her journey through diagnosis and healing with ArtWorks by her side. In Part II of this series, she talks about the immeasurable bond that she formed with her siblings and family at Express Yourself throughout the years. We can’t wait to premiere her story in its entirety next month!
This #GivingTuesday, you can help ArtWorks make a difference in the lives of children facing chronic and life limiting illness. Between now and Tuesday, Dec 3, we will be sharing a story of hope and inspiration about ArtWorks Alum, Rowan Zubi. Throughout her childhood and two cancer diagnoses, Rowan found her passion and talent with ArtWorks. In Part I of this series, you will meet Rowan and hear about how her journey began. Stay tuned over the next few days to learn more about how access to art and dance inspired her, brought her closer to her family and empowered her to heal herself.
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
