Art from the Heart

Art Heart

There is a new art fundraiser happening in February at the Firehouse Gallery in Burlington.

Art from the Heart was started in 1994 by Abby Rose, and is modeled after the Harlem Art Studio in Harlem NY. Our goal with this program is to facilitate self-expression with recovering children. Our philosophy is simple and direct: allow children to grow and heal through their own creative process.

Art from the Heart's official partnership with Fletcher Allen began when it became a program of Burlington City Arts in 1997 and has remained strong ever since. Each year, the program showcases the young artists' work by producing an assortment of greeting cards that can be pre-ordered for the holiday season or a special occasion. Art from the Heart also exhibits patient's work several times throughout the year, where families of participating children, donors, volunteers and administrations from BCA and Fletcher Allen come together to celebrate the children, volunteers, and the art of healing.

Please come if you can, the even is on February 10th, 2009 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Raffle tickets are $25 and includes the price of admission. To make a donation to this worth cause, go here. For more information about the event, click on the Art from the Heart link above.
