Art Society Brings Love Of Art To Palms West

Art Society Brings Love Of Art To Palms West


By Town-Crier Editor - April 12, 2019

Sharing the love of art with the community is a large part of the Wellington Art Society’s mission, and a new project to bring art to the pediatric unit at Palms West Hospital is a dream come true for Wellington Art Society President Carolina King, as well as many other members. The project got underway on April 4, which was just the beginning of bringing watercolor paint, supplies and crafts to children recovering at the hospital.
“It is a true community effort,” said King, who oversees collecting art supplies for all children in the community with the help of many art society members. “The Junior League of the Palm Beaches reached out to us and donated 50 backpacks filled with art supplies so we could give art to the children who may be too sick to leave their hospital bed. Each month, we are asking members of our business community to sponsor a visit so we can continue to bring art to the children. The community outreach means the world to me after witnessing my mother-in-law undergoing chemo and radiation procedures for almost two years before losing her battle to cancer. I knew I had to do something to help others.”
When an attorney at the law firm where King works heard of the project, he reached out and offered to sponsor the first visit. King said she is looking forward to partnering with others in the community who also want to spread the joy of art to the children.
