Girl Talk 2018

What is Girl Talk?

Girl Talk is an arts based self-esteem workshop established by The Art of Elysium in 2002 at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to help girls (6 to 17 years of age) who are patients of the plastic surgery division.


The girls attend an 8-week support program that uses an arts based approach that integrates fine and performing arts into each session. The goal of the program is to improve coping skills, as well as address social issues such as anxiety, self-esteem, communication, empowerment and positive self-image. The Art of Elysium provides these creative workshops in art, dance, acting and fashion. The girls graduation culminates in a fashion show to reiterate and show family and friends what they have learned during the program. Each girl is paired with a buddy for the day to help guide them through the day with makeup and hair choices, wardrobe changes, and emotional support. 

There are 17 girls this year participating.


All donations should be sent to the address below and before their graduation on Sunday, October 28, 2018.
