Get Crafty for Diabetes Art Day

Wednesday, September 1, 2010 has been declared Diabetes Art Day, by Lee Ann Thill, who is an Art Therapist, a fellow D-OC member, and host of the diabetes blog, The Butter Compartment.

Between now and September 1st, participants will be creating diabetes inspired works of art using the artistic media of their choice, and then post pictures of their work on a blog, twitter, facebook, a diabetes social network, etc… on September 1st.  More details can be found on Lee Ann’s blog.

I’m rather excited and proud to say that I’ll be participating in this inaugural Diabetes Art Day, and I hope that the rest of the diabetic online community will get involved as well.  It doesn’t matter if your an experienced artist or a beginner.  All are welcome.

So, if you think it would be cool to create diabetes inspired works of art, here’s your chance to create something and share it with the world.  I’m looking forward to meeting your inner artists.

And remember, it’s all in the name of raising awareness, and supporting the members of our community.

So, go grab some art supplies, and get crafty.
