Visit to NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue

This week, ArtWorks visited NYC Health and Hospitals/Bellevue to see Child Life Specialists, Gloria Mattera and Astrid Rios. Our amazing percussion artist, Reese Carr has been working with Young Artists there and Astrid let us know that some of the parents have shared with her how positive his impact has been on their children, in some cases evoking a response the parents had not previously seen. We are so proud of the work Reese is doing at Bellevue and can’t wait to see what their Young Artists will submit for Express Yourself on October 7th! #ArtWorksKids

Visit to Blythedale Children’s Hospital

We recently had the opportunity to visit Child Life Specialists, Kelsey Mayer and Lesley Phillips at Blythedale Children’s Hospital where Artworks Teaching Artists Deborah Dawson and Judith Williams were working at bedside with patients in a laser-guided painting workshop. This program utilizes a laser light, attached to the artist’s head or hand, which allows them to guide the Teaching Artist to choose and mix colors, as well as direct the paintbrush to create a painting. It was wonderful to see these Young Artists empowered by the creative process!  #ArtWorksKids
