Our 2013-14 Art Season was our biggest yet!
We had over 180 participants at our End of Season art workshop at Google in March 2014. We added some new artists in our group and we would like to thank them for volunteering. The following Artists created with our kids and families, Amy King, Tiffany Birch, Rinat Goren, Ginger Slonaker, Belinda Chlouber, Shiraaz Bhabha, Lynda Pervar, Faye Sahai, Cristina Mancin, Cecil Picard, Yukari Lake, Patty Owyang, Davina Moussa, Jil Coolidge, Helen Cole Lew, Roque Ballesteros, Brad Rau, Rajee Shah, Neta Levi, Kris Toscanini, Laxmi Natarajan, Silvi Alcivar, Lianne Thompson, Michael and Natasha from Ghostbot.
2014-15 Art Season is already promising to be exciting. We will kick off our very first workshop in October with a celebrated artist from New York, Brendan Murphy. Brendan is flying to the Bay Area especially to work with kids from Kids & Art.
Kids & Art is spreading color a little farther from home base in November. We will collaborating with the Downtown Project and teaming up kids from Cure 4 The Kids Foundation in Las Vegas with Artist Kent Caldwell. Kent is an acrobat with Cirque Du Soleil's Mystere and an artist who loves creating Dioramas.
Most importantly, we have created art packages to donate to Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. Kids & Art's team of artists and adult volunteers will spend an afternoon in the Bass Center Day Hospital waiting area creating art with the families getting treatment and drop off the 30 art bags with their Child Life Team. We cannot wait to spread the cheer of color!
