Review for The Art of Elysium, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I have volunteered with Art of Elysium for a year and the experience has been very rewarding and beautiful. At a time when the quality of art programs in public schools continues to decrease or they completely disappear, the work Art of Elysium does is very important. And they do it with passion and purpose. Every month I spend 2 hours doing art projects on the pediatrics floor of a hospital in Los Angeles. The joy it brings to the kids is immeasurable. I have met kids experiencing all types of different medical situations and sometimes it is kids as young as 6 going through cancer treatment. And the fun and excitement they get in those 2 hours can give them just a little bit of hope and encouragement. Often the parents of the kids are there and they express how grateful they are to see their kid smiling and engaged in a project while they are in the hospital!
