I LOVE this quote:
"Art does not solve problems but makes us aware of their existence. It opens our eyes to see and our brain to imagine."
I love it so much, that it inspired me to a drawing (see second picture on the left, I didn't say the quality is great :P).
You have no idea how art can help people. Sometimes we can't express ourselves with words, that's when art helps us communicate. Please consider helping with this wonderful project. Thank you! :)
Now read what the lovely Sophia Bush wrote!!! :)
Sophia Bush wrote -
The Art of Elysium is dedicated to enriching the lives of artists and critically ill children. We believe that there is a powerful and mutual exchange of hope and appreciation that occurs when artists share their time and talent with children battling serious medical conditions.
The lives of these children are largely filled with suffering, loneliness, fear and regimen. Artists have the unique ability to help children in need find a creative voice and discover a sense of individuality and self-efficacy, even in the midst of overwhelmingly difficult circumstances. In return, those same artists, who have been taken outside of their normal scope of work, are stretched and enriched in ways they never imagined.
Through this inimitable exchange between artist and child, the artist experiences the power of giving and the child experiences the power of their own artistic journey.
