September 1st is Diabetes Art Day

The 2nd annual Diabetes Art Day will take place just over a week from now on Thursday, September 1, 2011.

For those who don’t know, Diabetes Art Day was created last year by my friend, fellow DOC member and art therapist, Lee Ann Thill. She blogs over at The Butter Compartment.
The inaugural Diabetes Art Day was an unqualified success, and I’m proud to say that I’ll be participating again this year. And I hope that the rest of the Diabetes Online Community will join the fun again as well.

And that’s what Diabetes Art Day is all about; having fun with our DOC family and friends while offering a glimpse into life with Diabetes by way of artistic expression.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re an experienced artist or a beginner, everyone is welcome to participate in Diabetes Art Day.

I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with this year. So go grab some art supplies, and get crafty!

This collage is made up of images of works from last year’s event.

    Thanks for the post promoting Diabetes Art Day, Mike! I really appreciate your help getting people interested and excited about it. Obviously, I’m hoping for even broader participation this year, and this certainly will help us get there! Also, your collage rocks 🙂
