Youth Creativity Project, a nonprofit developed by McLean High School students, aims to help children in health-care centers through art activities.

The group relies on donations to fund recurring art-activity programs. Since fall 2020, the group has worked with hospitals in the region to serve residents and children.

The organization on the evening of Aug. 17 will host a rock-painting event with youths ages 13 to 18 at the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Northern Virginia, which offers support, education and advocacy to people affected by mental-health conditions.

Youth Creativity Project is holding a “Poorly Drawn Portraits” fund-raiser to help purchase paint brushes, acrylic-paint sets and rocks for that event’s art kits.


For a $7 donation, the group will draw a portrait of donors and/or their pets. Donors can submit images through July 31 at bit.ly/ycpfund. The group will return the finished artworks within two weeks.

Donations also may be made at https://campaigns.fundsy.io/youth-creativity-project. To learn more, visit www.youthcreativityproject.org.
