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.

August 2017 ARTIST OF THE MONTH: Ellie
Age 4


“Hi, I’m Elliot but my friends call me Ellie! I am so excited to tell you why I love to do art! I am four years old turning five this month and I live in South Amboy, New Jersey. I go to St. Peter’s Hospital because I have Leukemia. My favorite animal is a rabbit, sometimes I even paint them pink! I like to make art because sometimes I get a little too tired and art helps me get my energy back. My favorite kind of art is making sculptures from recycled toys and painting them!”
