The Foundation For Hospital Art

is an organization which is dedicated to involving patients and volunteers worldwide (in 179 countries) to create calming, beautiful artwork to be donated to hospitals to help soften the sometimes stressful hospital experience.

They welcome our love and support in their mission of compassion through art.

They believe that the traditional hospital setting: exemplified by white, sterile walls and ceilings. are often colorless, lifeless, and uninviting.

So, they have come up with PaintFests. PaintFests are joyful group gatherings to paint a pre-drawn multiple canvas art work. It enables everyone to participate and all you need is a heart to make beautiful things happen. Check them out at the link above.

There is a wonderful ministry which was started by Tom’s Shoes.¬† Their commitment is to match every pair of shoes purchased with a donation to a child in need. Our church did this at Christmas.

Basically everyone who participated purchased a pair of the white canvas shoes and painted or designed them. The purchased shoes were then donated to needy children, and the bonus was that Tom’s shoes matched our donation! This is a great ministry for churches, local Christian groups, art groups or anyone who has a heart for the needy.

You can design the shoes in any way you choose. Let your creativity flow, then donate the shoes to shelters, orphanages or if your church is going on a missions trip send a few pairs with them so they can donate them to needy children in other countries. This is an awesome idea for visual art ministry and better yet a great way for artists to help in sharing the gospel.
