Diabetes Art Day

Feeling creative? Then why not bust out some art supplies and make a piece for the third annual Diabetes Art Day, coming up on September 24!

Diabetes Art Day was founded in 2010 by Lee Ann Thill, an art therapist living with Type 1 diabetes[1], to encourage people with diabetes (and their families) to communicate their experiences with the condition, to help people connect, and to raise awareness of diabetes. Over 80 people participated[2] the first year, with involvement more than doubling to 170 people in 2011.

Once you’ve made something, head over here[3] for instructions on how to upload an image of your work. The pieces that have been contributed will be shared on the 2012 gallery.

Don’t have enough time to submit a piece for 2012? Well, the next Diabetes Art Day is just around the corner, on February 4, 2013. So get those creative juices flowing and make some art!
