Throughout the year, the ArtWorks community meets a Young Artist from one of our programs who has used the creative and performing arts to help them cope with their illness.

February 2017 ARTIST OF THE MONTH: Abigail
Age 10




Abigail is a 10-year-old who created her piece “Cat and Bird” for Express Yourself-New Jersey in 2014. Her family and friends are her inspiration for the pieces she creates. “I was sick in the hospital with cancer when I was little, but fought it and got stronger,” she states. It was in the hospital that she learned about ArtWorks and made her amazing piece. She would like to share with the ArtWorks community: “No matter what you were diagnosed with, you can still express yourself through art!” Thank you Abigail for your inspiring words, we are so proud to celebrate your creative spirit as this month’s #YoungArtistHighlight!
