Fine Arts Creating Cancer Enlightenment - Educational Partnership
The FACCE (Fine Arts Creating Cancer Enlightenment) program provides an opportunity for area high school art students to showcase their artistic skills while developing a more profound understanding of cancer and its side effects. Through partnerships with local school districts, we engage both instructors and students alike through integrating a cancer related art assignment into their curriculum. White Styrofoam wig heads are provided to each student in an art class to design and paint during a 6-week time frame. The finished products are proudly displayed on wigs that are given free to women undergoing hair loss due to a cancer diagnosis.
The project paves a way for young adults to become cognizant and responsive to community service. The hands-on project provides a team approach among students to address and discuss specific issues for which there may be no prior knowledge. Students from different backgrounds and varying experiences are more aware of the cancer experience and understand the role arts plays in healing our community.
If you are interested in students from your school campus participating in the FACCE program, please call Cindi Martinez , Program Coordinator at 915-562-7660.
