Extraordinary day drawing with the wonderful children at St. Mary’s Hospital! The kids leapt right into depictions of birds, trains, astronauts, and octopus aliens abducting cats and Machine Gun Kelly!? 😂

Huge thanks to the coordinating prowess of our fearless Event Director, Tim Savage, and to our volunteers, Ray Alma, Pedro Delgado, Dayna Gonzalez, Joyce Pedretti, Adrian Sinnott, and Elizabeth Winter for making drawings enough for 40 kids today!

Love Bugs Feb 2023

Love Bugs at Bellevue Hospital 02/14/2023

Check out the magnificent “love bugs” the kids at Bellevue Hospital made! For Valentine’s Day this year, our Event Director, Micheline Hess created a step by step video, guiding the kids in how to create these lovable characters using our art supply kits. They made happy rainbows, angry birds, and all around adorable friends that they can keep, trade, or give away.

Now you can try it too! Gather a few fun tools like foam balls, heart shapes, paint sticks, and googly eyes – we got ours from Blick Art Materials- and follow this video:

We’d love to see what you come up with! Tag us @inkwellkids on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.

Valentine’s Day Cards for the kids at Bellevue Hospital 2/2023

Valentine’s Day Cards for the kids at Bellevue Hospital 2/2023

We delivered stacks of handmade Valentine’s Day cards from our animators, illustrators, and cartoonists to the doorstep of each child being served by Bellevue Hospital’s pediatric in-patient psychiatry team. Every child also received their very own art kit so they could make their own cards to exchange with one another or give to their loved ones.

Thanks to Elana Amity, Jane Archer, Matthew Bennett, Joan Chiverton, Pedro Delgado, Dayna Gonzalez, Stefano Imbert, Joyce Pedretti, Ellie Rahim, and Elizabeth Winter for your thoughtful homemade messages! ❤️

Valentine’s “Love Bugs” and Card Drive for Children at Bellevue Hospital 02/2023

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we shipped off “love bug” kits to the kids at Bellevue Hospital! Our Event Director, Micheline Hess, also created a step-by-step guide for how to use all these fun supplies to create a unique character. Can’t wait to see what they come up with using foam balls, tempera paint sticks, googly eyes, heart shapes and more. 💖

Our volunteers also crafted handmade cards so each child being treated at the in-patient psychiatric ward could receive their own message and drawing of love and support.
