Sisters, Oregon is an artsy little town with numerous art galleries. Once a month the streets are filled with people enjoying the “Fourth Friday Art Walk,” where they roam from gallery to gallery enjoying drinks and snacks and taking in the artwork. During the July and August art walks, they saw art unlike any they’ve ever seen before: art made by children living in orphanages. In an effort to find more local sponsors, World’s Children hosted a clothesline art display.
Every year we receive hundreds of hand-made art pieces from the 29 orphanages we support, which we then forward to the sponsors. When we see a particularly moving drawing, we scan it and save it. The Sister’s Art Walk marked the first time World’s Children publicly exhibited this art. We hope you enjoy the kid’s art.
