Flutter is pleased to announce our parternship with the Children’s Healing Art Project, bringing the healing power of art to children in crisis and their families with a mobile team of teaching artists working in Portland’s children’s hospitals and CHAP’s post-hospital studio art camp in the Pearl District.
Be a part of CHAP’s MILLION BEAD PROJECT: an art experience that crosses all age, gender, religious, ethnic and social boundaries. Families in waiting rooms outside hospital surgery wards, moms living with their children on oncology floors during treatments, nurses, local high school students, Girl Scout troops and many more are all stringing strands of beads. With each strand you string, you are invited to write your prayers and thoughts in our journal. Each strand becomes part of a collaborative sculpture where private prayers become public art. This one-of-a-kind beaded glass sculpture will be sold to support CHAP’s mission to bring the healing power of art to children in crisis.
Join FLUTTER and CHAP at the Mississippi Street Fair – July 12 10-7 and create your own bracelets, necklaces, keychains at the CHAP BEAD FACTORY or Decorate CHAP’s Art Car all in support of this amazing organization.
