My Art Goes Bang has Hospital Visits and Other Events Planned for Fall 2016

Founded in 2013, My Art Goes Bang is a charity organization that offers art workshops to hospitalized children in and around Paris. Using research that shows how art has a positive effect on children undergoing treatment for illness, My Art Goes Bang members volunteer on a weekly basis visiting children in hospitals and raising money for this wonderful cause. In the Fall 2016 semester alone, AUP student members raised over 300 euros with a bake sale in the Combes lobby to buy art equipment and the necessary supplies to equip the workshops.

Hospital visits take place on Mondays from 16:30 to 18:30 at Clinique Édouard Rist (14 Rue Boileau) and Thursdays from 9:30 to 12:00 at Hôpital Necker-Enfants malades (149 Rue de Sèvres). A Christmas party for the children is currently being planned.
