Städtisches Krankenhaus Kiel

Published on 2016 Septembre 09

The painting project is complete and was inaugurated Friday, August 12, 2016!

Two departments were painted: the consulting and the hospitalisation departments.
The theme "Children of the World" now adorns the corridors. It was selected by the hospital to reflect all the nationalities present in Kiel, so that children can return to a familiar landscape or aspect of their culture.

The paint artists have now headed to new pictorial adventures.
You can find photos of inpatient and ambulatory emergency departments here and the outpatient department here.

And of course don't hesitate to check out our FB page!

Anières’ Promotions Festival

Paint a Smile provided a framework for three kindergarten and primary school classes to produce a mural measuring 7 metres on the theme of Pop Art. The painting will be displayed in the school as a remembrance of this event.

A "Photo booth" workshop was also proposed. Giant brushes, wigs and various accessories were available allowing for unlimited playful variations of poses and smiles. Photos printed on the spot were offered to the children.

It was a wonderful day! Thank you for the welcome, and congratulations to the children for their creativity!
