The Art of Healing - Akin Projects at Ronald Macdonald House Charities

The Art of Healing is a collaboration between Akin Projects and Ronald McDonald House Charities Toronto. Local artists graciously gave their time and creativity to craft pieces of art with children staying at the House. The pieces they produced are colourful, unique and beautiful expressions of the pairings that produced them. Families are there during a stressful and often chaotic time in their lives. Creating art gives kids a chance to take their mind off of things and encourages them to pursue their creativity in new ways.

The one-of-a-kind works of art were auctioned off at a special donor and volunteer appreciation event. Click here to see images of the artwork and auction event.

The Art of Healing was also featured on City News. Click here to see the video.
