Children’s Healing Art Project

holidayBizarre.jpgThose in the Portland, Ore., area still finishing up their holiday shopping need only make one more stop: the Children’s Healing Art Project (CHAP) Holiday Bizarre. What’s CHAP about, you ask? It’s a Portland program consisting of a mobile team of teaching artists who create art with patients and families of patients in local children’s hospitals. CHAP’s Holiday Bizarre is a 27-day nonstop art-making factory at the 937 Condos that comes to a close Dec. 24. You’re invited to come and view works of art by the children CHAP works with in any day from noon to 7 p.m., and make your own gifts, wrapping and ornaments, too. The goal is to raise funds for the CHAP art programs and spread the healing power of art to the public—a gift that truly keeps on giving.
