“Art for Kids” & DHMC Craniofacial Clinical Art Exhibit at the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library
The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is pleased to host a new collection of artwork made by children in the “Art for Kids” Program and the DHMC Craniofacial Clinic. Art for Kids (AFK) is a monthly art program at the AVA gallery in Lebanon, NH, for children with chronic medical conditions and their siblings. The dynamic and creative children work one-on-one with a volunteer student from the Geisel School of Medicine to create fun and magical pieces of artwork. The AFK program has since expanded to the DHMC Craniofacial Clinic with an interactive waiting-room arts program to keep the kids entertained during long appointments.
The exhibit will run from April 26, 2015, until the end of July and will display selected pieces of artwork made by the children over the past year. The collection is eclectic including everything from portraits, paintings and prints to sculptures and 3D installations.
