A quarantine project by ArtWatch

Looking for a reason to wake up tomorrow? Want to show your appreciation to those helping everyone else? ArtWatch is using our quarantined creativity to thank hospital workers for, well, for everything. Want to participate?

Let’s make art! It’s the most meaningful thing we can give to express our profound thanks to hospital staff risking their own health during this pandemic.

Come on and join the project. Draw /paint original artwork on one side of a 4″ x 6″ index card or same size piece of cardstock, cardboard, etc. Finish one and want to do more? Make a dozen! Leave the back blank (except for a brief personal note, if you wish) so we can add a sticker with the project info.

Put your card(s) in an envelope and use that great United States Postal System to mail it/them to:
Jackie Hoysted,
4526 Cheltenham Ave,
Bethesda, MD 20814-4602

ArtWatch will distribute the cards to hospital workers around the DMV. The deadline to mail your cards is Wednesday, May 18.

Please spread the word — the project is open to any and all artists.
