(Calhoun, Ga) — New masterpieces are now being displayed in Gordon Hospital’s Healing Arts Gallery.
Visitors and patients alike are enjoying the colorful works of art created by Coble Elementary School students on the topics of Nutrition and Healthy Foods. The gallery is located down the main corridor of the hospital.
“We are thrilled to share this artwork at Gordon Hospital,” said Davette Watson, a member of the hospital’s Healing Arts Gallery committee. “This gallery continues to bring smiles to the faces of everyone who takes the time to enjoy them.”
The program was initiated in 2005 to bring health education to local school children. Gordon Hospital staff members provide a brief educational presentation on a health topic and then the children are asked to draw a picture illustrating the topic. Each student receives a blue ribbon for participating. Art is collected from each of the schools and the staff members choose several winners to display in the gallery.
Artists currently on display include: Gabby Alverez, Bell Parker, Cailey Moore, Katie Shelley, Jenna Peel, Olivia Fisher, Daniel Burke, Brook Smith, Emily Harrison, Brandon Clough, Oran Smith, McKenzie Everts, Nick Walton, Caleb Alvarez, Cole Turner, Jadyn Davis, Natalie Draia, Sam Moore, Courtney Stendale, Emma Cargile, Jesse Parker, T. J. Whitfield, Brandon Clough, and Aimee Shelley.
