Kids make artwork for Paintbox Project

10 Dec

It was a double treat for young Roswell Park cancer patients, survivors, and their families Wednesday night.

They created holiday artwork and they were given a behind-the-scenes tour of UB’s Center for the Arts. The artwork will be used for holiday cards and gifts in the Paintbox Project. If you’d like to see the 2011 collection.

The Paint Box Project uses the healing power of art to help young cancer patients and their families express themselves during and after cancer treatment. Created in 1990 by the volunteers of the Roswell Park Alliance Community Advisory Board, the Project hosts art parties where children create original designs that are featured on holiday, wedding, and all-occasion cards and gifts.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of items benefit compassionate patient support programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.  Thank you for supporting this very personal effort in the fight against cancer.
