THE PROJECT:

Pediatric patients brainstormed and came up with all kinds of ideas of showing animals having fun whether they are sick or well. Designer and illustrator @russrs turned their ideas into a mural design that volunteers will help outline and the kids will get to bring to life on the hospital walls.  

THE ORGANIZATION:

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) serves kids of all ages from the Atlanta area and beyond. From colorful, friendly waiting rooms to equipment that fits patients of all sizes, every detail is designed specifically for kids. 

 CHOA is one of the largest pediatric clinical care providers in the U.S. and home to one of the top pediatric surgery programs in Georgia. The goal of their Artist in Residence program is to teach children to express themselves in a positive way through art. The Art program provides normalization to kids an distracts them from their pain or any problems they are experiencing at the time of their hospital visit.

CHOA serves children ranging from newborn to young adults (20 years of age). Most patients they work with are patients with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, Cystic Fibrosis, cancer, and cardiac issues. They also work with transplant patients and kids who have experienced some form of trauma. Their patient demographic is multicultural and largely lower to middle income families with limited resources outside of the hospital.

Mableton Elementary- "City in a Forest" - Dec 14

Current Needs 

  • Volunteers to assist!

The Project 

Paint Love Artist and TCP resident Andrew Cantanese will lead third graders at Mableton Elementary in a six-week series called “City in a Forest”

Atlanta is known as “City in a Forest” because of its dense foliage and biodiversity. This program will introduce Atlanta as the forest it is and teach students how to recognize the plants that make up their home while translating this information into creative projects of their own. Initially, it will be a series of sketchbook trips to natural areas such as green school grounds, local parks and/or public areas with high plant variety. After learning about some of the most commonly sighted plants and a few hard-to-find ones, the students translate sketches into an art form of their choice such as paintings, collages, sculptures, poems, or even songs. The students will select their favorite personal projects as inspiration to design a collaborative public art project including work from each student classmate. This experience will equip participants with tools to maintain creative outlets indefinitely and an enhanced understanding and appreciation of their natural surroundings, wherever they go in life.

The School

Mableton Elementary has 1,052 students in grade levels K-5. They are a Title I elementary school with approximately 85% of students receiving free or reduced lunch. Their goal is to provide our students with exposure to as many opportunities that they would not otherwise receive outside of school. Having a STEAM focused curriculum is affording us this chance to engage them with creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking that will, in turn, help them become 21st century learners of the future.
