CHAP, or Children’s Healing Art Project, is a wonderful non-profit in Portland that provides art lessons and parties to disabled or sick children. I volunteered there for 6 months as a graphic designer and art teacher before they offered me a contract for 6 months. I provided them with design and IT support, but my absolute favorite part was making art and teaching art with the children at the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Pediatric Oncology ward.
