Children’s art gallery in seniors’ home inspires connection between elders and youth

A continuing care center is the site of a new gallery of children’s art, thanks to an innovative Alberta’s Promise partnership aimed at connecting elders and youth. The gallery contains 30 pieces of artwork created by elementary school children. The themes range from favorite pastimes, like golf and skateboarding, to summer holidays at the lake and depictions of the weather.


Picture This is a proud supporter of Edmonton and Northern Alberta Crime Stoppers. A portion of the proceeds from artwork sold on Crime Stoppers Art will support Crime Stoppers. Picture This will also donate $10 from each picture frame package purchased of Crime Stoppers Art to support Crime Stoppers.


Picture This is proud to support organizations that are using art in a unique way to make a difference in people’s lives. One organization they have worked with is the Arts in Medicine Program, directed by Dr. Marilyn Hundleby at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, Alberta. Together, Picture This, with the participating artists of the annual Masterpieces in Miniature art show have donated over $30,000 as of 2014 to this much needed program that helps cancer patients through the healing process by creating art.
