artma kid artists

artma exists because there are kids with cancer who are fighting every day to survive.

For each artma event, the Ponzio Creative Arts Therapy team at Children’s Hospital Colorado, coordinates an art project with kids in treatment in the Pediatric Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. For our 2024 event, 27 kids, teens, and young adults participated by creating a drawing of their personal guardian animal who looks out for them and protects them, complete with a name and a description of their superpower. Then, an artist from Glass Artists of Colorado transformed the two-dimensional drawing into a three-dimensional glass sculpture.

Each of these priceless, one-of-a-kind glass art sculptures was available for purchase at artma 2024.
