Indiana Blood Center has partnered with schools across the state of Indiana to launch its second year of the Community Artists Program. The program partners local elementary and intermediate schools’ art classes with Indiana Blood Center by allowing students to create and paint canvases reflecting themes related to blood donation and Indiana Blood Center. Past theme’s have included, cell biology, Indiana Blood Center’s Raise Your Sleeve campaign, and Phil – Indiana Blood Center’s mascot. The resulting artwork then appears at Indiana Blood Center donor centers statewide, where they provide a pleasant viewing atmosphere for donors as they give blood.
Recently, Indiana Blood Center partnered with Dollens and Lincoln Elementary school’s where art teacher, Michelle Luck, had her students paint canvases relating to cell biology reflecting what they had learned in their science curriculum. Indiana Blood Center’s mascot – Phil, decided to pay a visit to the Indiana Blood Center’s Columbus donor center to check out the artwork and remind us of how simple the donating process can be!
