Karen Lefebvre-Christou receives Leeway Foundation’s Art & Change Grant

The Leeway funding will allow art2love to move forward with artlings workshops at CHOP! Eighteen more children in the outpatient oncology clinic will create and receive their own artlings. Thank you Leeway Foundation!

“Karen’s workshop will be a continuation of an earlier project she organized at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Karen will ask children in the outpatient oncology department to draw pictures of something or someone they would like to keep them company during their time in the hospital. She will then re-create the drawings in fabric as custom, plush, soft sculptures and give these “artlings” to the children. The goal of the workshop is to empower, encourage, and heal children in crisis through art–their own art.”
