CHAP August 2021 Newsletter

Wall Art Installation!

  To celebrate CHAP’s 15th anniversary and over 75,000 healing art experiences, we’re starting the installation of wall tiles hand-designed by you! Soon, the wall just inside the CHAP studio will be covered with tiles created by children, volunteers, donors, staff, Board members…anyone who has been touched by the healing power of art that CHAP provides. If you wish to contribute a tile to the wall, contact Faye at [email protected].

A $15 donation per tile is appreciated.

New Community Partners!  

Thanks to grants from MillsDavis Foundation and the Advantis Community Fund, CHAP will soon begin providing free Healing Art Care Packages full of inspiring art supplies to medical facilities that support historically underserved families and children. Clinics that treat no- and low-income families are prioritized in the selection so that children whose families may not be able to afford art supplies can receive the colorful packets. 

Summer Workshop Recap

CHAP has had such a blast facilitating creativity virtually and in-person this summer! The kids have made some excellent pieces that we’re excited to show you. We’re so grateful to all who participated!

Also, a huge shout-out to Outpatient Program Coordinator, Scarlett Aguilar, who pulled this off so wonderfully, during a pandemic! 
Last but not least, THANK YOU to our volunteers who assisted in the studio and who taught online workshops.


On August 1st, CHAP set up at Topaz Farm on Sauvie Island.
Families painted cardboard cutouts of fruit and veggies, and CHAP offered face painting as well as HeART Boxes for sale!
Thank you for hosting us, Topaz, and thank you to everyone who came out!


CHAP had so much fun creating alongside families from the Migrant Education Program! It was an afternoon filled with paint, pizza, and fairy wands! Artists painted fabric “tiles” for CHAP to sew into a mosaic banner, and got to take home art kits!⠀
