Surprise!Supplies provides young patients suffering from chronic and life-threatening illnesses with their own ArtWorks art supplies, encouraging them to keep their creative energy pumping during their time spent in and out of the hospital.
Surprise!Supplies provides fully stocked mobile art carts with art supplies, craft kits and original ArtWorks activity books filled with games, activities and pages to color. The goal is for these children, and their siblings who accompany them, to have their own kit of crafts to keep them busy creating while anticipating a long day in treatment or accompanying a sibling to a procedure.
Additionally, hospitals receive an ArtWorks bulletin board to showcase the children's masterpieces in the pediatric unit. Here are just a few of the many testimonials from kids & parents and hospital staff.
We would like to thank artist Ed Heck for all of his help and the countless hours he has spent painting the art carts. Please contact us if you would like more information on Surprise!Supplies or ArtWorks.
