ArtSouth was awarded Youth Service America’s: BE FEARLESS BE KIND Grant

ArtSouth’s service learning students planned, developed and executed “HATS OFF TO YOU,” an ongoing series of service learning events to benefit pediatric cancer patients. High School students partner with children, using their creative skills to design and produce custom handmade head wear creations. Beginning with unadorned hats, students and patients collaborate adding a variety of embellishments, paints, fabric markers and ribbons. Hats are created and worn to brighten the spirits of the youth experiencing cancer treatment.
