See that gorgeous iPhone case over there? It’s printed from original art and signed by the artist.
Impressed yet? You will be. The artist’s name is Anwar, and he’s from Kuwait. He’s also a child cancer patient.
All of the lovely goods from The Children’s Art Project
are based on the artwork of child cancer patients through an inspiring
program at the the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. But as you can see on their website, they
usually strike through the word Cancer and focus on the Children and the
Working with trained artists as part of their treatment, the children create original masterpieces using a
variety of media. Then the work is printed on jewelry,
clothing, cards, calendars, umbrellas, totes, phone covers, and so much
more. Even a gorgeous silk scarf, based on the artwork of Gatlin from Huntsville, Texas.
All the proceeds go right back to MD
Anderson to fund summer camps, scholarships, and patient-focused
programs. So not only do the kids get to feel the joy of creating
artwork, but they also feel pride in the celebration of their gifts and
the ability to help themselves and each other. -Delilah
