The Creativity Continues - Children's Healing Art Project


The Healing Continues

There’s no doubt that these are very challenging times for everyone…and the children CHAP serves are no exception.

Imagine what it’s like for the little ones still in the hospitals facing their own medical challenges with limited visitors, everyone fully gowned and masked, and no CHAP Teaching Artists making their usual rounds. And the children who are home, unable to play with other kids and no CHAP Art Club to enjoy with friends at the studio.

Art heals.

And we all could use some healing right now. So, CHAP is doing what we do best — we’re getting creative to serve kids and families in brand new ways! The creativity …and the healing… continues!

Art Packs for Hospitals

Hospitalized children can still explore the healing power of art during the pandemic with art supplies provided by CHAP that kids can enjoy in their rooms.

Each art pack includes an inspirational note from a CHAP Teaching Artist. If CHAP can’t be with them in person, we want to make sure they know we care.

These free CHAPpy Art Packs are available to any hospital or medical facility for the asking.

Online Art Clubs

Since kids can’t currently visit the CHAP studio, we now bring the healing power of art into their homes through Zoom.

Interactive Art Clubs online are happening almost weekly at no cost for Art Club families. Every project uses items commonly found around the house, or kids can bring their own ideas to the table!

Fun Art Project Posts

CHAP is posting lots of videos and instructions for creative art projects online that anyone can do at home. Every project uses items from around the house.

Check out CHAP on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to give it a try!

How you can help…

You can help CHAP stay connected with children and families who already face medical challenges by donating to keep these programs going. A big or a small gift, every dollar makes a difference.

On behalf of all the kids and families CHAP serves, we wish you endless JOY + CREATIVITY + HEALING.
