Funky Birds at Bellevue Hospital 4/1/22

We came up with an activity idea that’s downright FLAPALICIOUS! Funky Birds was a drawing activity designed by our new Event Director, Micheline Hess, that’s perfect for this time of year. It encouraged the imaginations of the kids at Bellevue Hospital, to take flight as they drew and accessorized their pick of the many birds that live in NYC and return each Spring. 

Bluejays got boots, Robbins got ready, and Pigeons got primped on rich black paper books we sent along with oil pastel crayons that can double as paint. The kids really made these vibrant colors, pop!

Enormous gratitude to Tifara León, who coordinated this event with us and guided the kids along at Bellevue!

Ink Well Coloring Book Delivery! 3/30/22

Our hearts are full of gratitude to Fia de Séve and her father, Peter, who hand crafted these beautiful coloring books, full of empowering adventures for the Ink Well kids!

Fia raised the money to print these books herself and now she and her mom, Randall, are delivering them in person, along with sets of crayons, to our partners at New Alternatives for Children, Bellevue Hospital, and St. Mary’s Hospital.

Fia is also offering additional free, downloadable coloring pages via Instagram:

Resources like these have been so invaluable to the children we serve throughout these past couple years of restricted in-person activities. We are so heartened to see young people like Fia catch the spark of supporting others in their community, especially through the healing power of art.

Thank you to this talented family of artists for sharing your gift with the Ink Well kids!
