This program encourages students to create artworks for children in hospital. It is an important visual arts exhibition that focuses on creating a positive environment to aid the healing and recovery process of young patients. Over 700 artworks are submitted annually and are all exhibited at the Armory Gallery, Sydney Olympic Park. A panel of judges selects 50 artworks for a touring exhibition. These artworks are shown at the Art Gallery of NSW and will also be exhibited in various regional art galleries for a year before returning to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead to become part of their permanent collection where they will be hung on the walls alongside other artists of renown.
