“The Healing Power of Art’ – Children’s Healing Art Project documentary

CHAP documentary The Healing Power of Art logo

We are excited and honored to announce the world premiere of Mariah Dunn’s “The Healing Power of Art.”

Mariah taught a four-day filmmaking camp to CHAP’s Art Club in September of 2012, and her subsequent documentary follows three families from that camp as children faced with life-altering challenges share their art and reveal how Children’s Healing Art Project has improved their lives.

“The Healing Power of Art” premieres in Portland at 3pm on September 15th, 2013 at the Clinton Street Theater followed by a panel discussion featuring the filmmaker and artists featured in the film.

In her film, Mariah talks about how CHAP is a place where kids can be themselves no matter what challenge they are facing in their lives. At CHAP everyone is facing a challenge and it’s that special bond that brings the kids and their families together. “The Healing Power of Art” takes you on a journey with these three families as you discover the challenges they face and how art has helped as they overcome them. Here is a sneak peak!
