The Brush is Mightier Than The Sword: Fighting Colon Cancer with Art
Vishal Sandesara, Member, Chris4Life Young Professional Board
I probably spent three or four hours trolling the internet looking for really creative DIY ideas for painting on canvas a few days prior to Chris4Life's ArtJamz event, which took place Sunday, October 14 in DC. I realize the contradictory nature of looking for something creative so that I could imitate it, making it not creative at all. In any case, I was looking forward to and really excited about ArtJamz. I wanted to come away with something I could "stick on the fridge", the fridge being one of the blank walls in my condo. ArtJamz in Dupont Circle is a well equipped art studio that allows first timers such as myself and seasoned Vincent van Bros to try their hand at being innovative and creative on canvas.
Here's to the arts supporting the fight against colon cancer!
