ART FOR ORPHANS Project was initiated by ArteLia under the umbrella of the Ukraine Charity. The project applies the universal language of art to heal, educate and enrich the skills and opportunities of less fortunate children from Ukrainian orphanages.
Workshops are led by a team of Artists and art teachers to educate and empower the younger generation by giving them a voice through the expression of art, by teaching them a sense of self-worth.
The program has been already launched in September 2010 in Poltava region orphanage schools with 500 children and will extend its activity to up to 10 schools across Ukraine by the end of 2011.
The workshops will run thought the whole academic year using the international art materials, generously donated by Sotheby's and Phillips de Pury auction houses, and expertise and knowledge of Ukrainian Artists.
At the end of the academic year, the children would prepare the exhibition and will visit Kiev to attend the Pinchuk Art Centre and other museums to learn the latest trends in contemporary art.
