Art Takeout

Barr Engineering and Art Takeout

All boxed up and ready to go after Barr Engineering took on the Art Takeout challenge once again. The staff volunteers put together Art Takeout projects that will be sent to Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, Mayo Eugenio Litta Children’s Hospital in Rochester, MN and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, FL. More than 450 projects in a little over 3 hours. WOW and THANK YOU BARR ENGINEERING!

We announce this news with joy and enthusiasm as we bring the arts and that many more smMCH_art_12-15iles to the children that we are privileged to work with.

Inside the Lines

Coloring inside the lines is what we are all told not to do. But when you are in the hospital spending days, weeks and sometimes months with your sick child, maybe it’s just what you need. Breanna’s Gift has just developed a new Art Takeout series and it’s for the adults who might be looking for a little diversion from long hours spent in a hospital room. “Inside the Lines” is an opportunity to make the simplest of decisions. Which drawing do I want to color? What color should I choose? Do I want to blend colors or keep it really basic. No matter what you decide, enjoy it all!insidethelines_5.2016
