Share Art Heal is an Official Sponsor of Dell Children's Trust's Art of Giving 2016
Share Art Heal is proud to be an official sponsor of the Children's Medical Center Foundation's Art of Giving event April 2, 2016. We are providing the canvases! Last year 12 artists with help from current and former patients, familes and the Austin community traised over $90,000 for the Art and Music Therapy program at Dell Children's Medical Center.
Share Art Heal founder Jet Baker was one of the 12 artists who participated in last years Art of Giving and is proud to be one of the 12 artists again this year. Jet with the help of current and former patients and families will be creating 36 x 36 acrylic paintings with pallet knives like we did last year. The Austin community is invited too! Details below.
"We're creating paintings like I create my oil paintings JetBakerArt.com. I write positive messages on the canvas, LOVE is always the first word on the canvas. Then I scrape over the words in a different color. The first color on the canvas always shows when you scrape. That's how I create my art. I believe we can feel the positive messages resonate through the finished piece of art just like the color shine through on the canvas when I scrape away the top layers.
I remember kid yelled across the room to his mom "Me and Dad are painting with knives!" The mom of another child asked where she could buy acrylic paints and pallet knives for her child. He'd never shown such interest in art.", Jet.
Here's why Dell Children's Trust hosts Art of Giving:
• It teaches children that they too can give to others via their art work; kids have the opportunity to work side-by-side with patients and local artists who donate their time and artwork
• It funds art & music therapy - a proven method of healing and expression for patients at the hospital
• The sponsors receive original framed artwork to hang in conference rooms/lobbies/homes - showcasing their generous donation to Dell Children's Medical Center
We look forward to seeing you and your families join our festivities and hope you'll become a sponsor of the Art of Giving this year!
