Mount Sinai Hospital 02/19/20
We drew fabulous fables with the kids at Mount Sinai Hospital today! Our illustrious host, Elana Amity, described classic Aesop’s tales like The Fox and the Crow and the Tortoise and the Hare then showed how to portray the stories in one telling drawing.
St. Mary’s Hospital 2/08/20
We were feelin’ so much love at St. Mary’s Hospital this weekend as we created handmade Valentine’s Day cards with the kids! Despite dealing with severe physical illnesses and injuries, over 50 children came down to the rec room and sat with us to talk about what they loved, who they were grateful for, and what characters those people would like to have on a card all their own. We drew proud roosters, flowering trees, and roses visited by bumble bees. Then we gave each child their own drawing kit, thanks to our arts sponsor Blick Arts, so they could keep making more cards or whatever they feel inspired to create on their own.
Thanks very much to the fantastic St. Mary’s staff for welcoming us back time and again to collaborate with these special children. Our hearts are full at the generosity and kindness of our trusty professional artist volunteers: Bil Donovan, Adrian Sinnott, Elizabeth Winter, and our Event Director, Tim Savage and to our art supply sponsors, Blick Arts, for the beautiful paper and drawing supplies!
