Open to visual artists working or residing in Inwood or Washington Heights.
NewYork Presbyterian's Choosing Healthy and Active Lifestyles for Kids (CHALK) is a collaboration between Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and the community of Northern Manhattan. The goal of CHALK is to educe the prevalence of childhood obesity in Northern Manhattan and create a wellness environment where healthy lifestyles are integral to all children and their families. We partner with schools, early childhood centers, faith based organizations, and community organizations throughout Washington Heights and Inwood.
The cornerstone of our work features the 10 Habits of Healthy Kids promoting healthy behavior through small changes that can be adopted and add up to a healthy lifestyle.
We showcase these habits through a yearly calendar distributed to all of our partners. To make a complete calendar we have added two additional habits, “Live your Life” and ”Add green to la bandera.” In the past, we’ve taken pictures of our partners in action or used a youth community artist to illustrate each habit. This year, we would like to feature a local artist's illustrations that represent the 10 healthy habits.
