  • 8 people are interested

This opportunity is open to adults and children and artists of all skill levels. This is a trial program set to run from February to April. The purpose of the program is to provide original artwork each month for hospice patients. Participants will receive an assignment at the beginning of each month, which can be completed on an 8.5x11 piece of paper. The art can be any medium, from crayons to colored pencils.

Each assignment will have a theme. One month may be a motivational poster, and the next month sees a a theme of "A Day at the Beach." Another month may have the artist fold the sheet in half and create a homemade greeting card.

The artwork should be mailed to Hospice of the West by the 15th of each month for distribution to patients.
