I am constantly on the lookout for new and exciting things to do in and around Melbourne. I am passionate about good food and cooking
Two and three-dimensional artworks by some of Australia's leading contemporary artists will be going under the hammer next week to raise funds for Art Cabriolet, an incredible not-for-profit that provides creative art therapies for children and their families who are braving physical or emotional trauma.

Art Cabriolet custom designs creative art programs that are implemented with health carers, social workers, psychologists, teachers and even parents.

It provides and supplies all equipment and materials necessary for the production of art in all mediums, with creative art therapies 'profiled' to suit all trauma circumstances so that relief and release from physical, psychological and emotional suffering and distress can be harnessed and encouraged.

Next Thursday's charity cocktail party and art auction, The Loaded Brush and Gavel, will benefit the Blue Sky cause, specific to children, their siblings and families in palliative care, respite or end of life.
The 'doing and practise' of the creative art therapies for the end of life child provides direct relief from anxiety and fear, which provides physiological relief from pain allowing the child to feel release stress and fear. This outcome is a process that all family members experience. The program provides a voice where children can be heard during a painful time. By working with siblings and parents the program assists families to question, confront and explore their feelings.
