Valentine's Cards for Hospitalized Kids

Art Start January 2014

For this "give back" project, we worked with an organization called Cards For Hospitalized Kids that collects handmade cards to distribute to young patients and their families who are in need of some cheer.

I taught a similar project last month at the Vernon Area Library. It went so well that I wanted to try it with my students at my studio as well.  When I explained our task to my students, they listened intently and got right to work on their beautiful cards.  My studio became a bustling card factory for the next two weeks.

Below you'll see just a handful of the over 200 cards they made. Because of these young artists, some kids in the hospital will hopefully find their Valentine's Day a little brighter. Way to go artists!
