Each Patient Pack includes 4 pre-drawn canvases, art supplies and instructions (for shipments within the United States there will also be a prepaid UPS return label included). We place small dots of color on the canvases so that everyone knows what color to paint.
The design crosses all four canvases, including the sides, which eliminates the need for framing.
10-12 people can typically paint one Patient Pack within 1.5-3 hours. The norm is 2 hours. Up to three people can work on one panel at a time.
The canvases are designed to hang one inch apart on a wall. They can be hung as a set or displayed individually. Each panel is 24 inches by 24 inches.
The Patient Packs have been designed so that the volunteers paint the front side of three of the four panels and the back side of the 4th panel. For the backside of the 4th panel, you are encouraged to come up with your own design and to include words of encouragement to a patient.
The panels will then be packaged and shipped with art supplies for the 4th panel to a patient in a long-term care situation. The patient and family will paint the final panel and then display in their room throughout their extended recovery.
