The Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope (AAFH) held its second Art Night at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in St. Petersburg, Florida on Wednesday, January 4, 2017.  Fifteen art kits were given to RHM in St. Pete's.

Young patients of all ages and some parents participated in the Mona Lisa acrylic paint on canvas activity.  These young patients are being treated at the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital a couple blocks away.

The acrylic paint project allowed the young patients to learn how to paint like the Master Leonardo Da Vinci.  A Mona Lisa traced on real canvas was given to each participant.  These paint kits included six acrylic paints, a paint brush, chip board easel, a hanging tab and instructions. 

These kits were put together by the Schultz family during a visit to the Alvin House during the holiday season.  Liz Schultz was Alyssa’s friend and visited Alyssa at Lurie Children’s Hospital to keep her company.  We are very appreciative of the Schultz family for volunteering to put the paint kits together for this Art Night.

The young patients enjoyed painting their own Mona Lisa with the easy-to-paint kit. When they got to see their finished product, the young patients were happy with their results and enjoyed this Art Night!
