Summer Art project with children with cancer

All the children of Armenia and Artsakh receive their chemotherapy treatment in Pediatric Cancer and Blood disorders Center of Hematology Center after R.Yeolyan. Approximately 100 The treatment takes from 4 to 12 months and during the treatment the children have limited opportunities for participating in social or any kind of activities due to their weakened immune system. The situation has been worsened with the COVID 19 and our children have become more isolated.
Our idea is to organize Art activities during the summer. Once a week the children and their parents will have opportunity to participate in Art classes with different activities. The classes will be held both in playroom of the hospital and in the yard of the hospital. Thus once a week Art Party will be held for the children. It will be both therapy and entertainment for the children.
The project will include activities such as:
• Painting on stained glass,
• Painting on Canvas
• Painting on T-shirts
• Work with clay and pottery
• Creation of developmental games
In the end of the project the exhibition will be held in the hospital.

The second part of the project is painting the walls of the procedure room of the pediatric department. The walls of the room are white, we would like to paint the walls with funny prints which will make the procedure room more frightening.
