About Sushobha Jenner
The World of Vegetables theme was suggested by the doctors and staff of the Endocrinology department at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center(CCMC). Five artworks were designed and sketched on to the canvas by Artist Sushobha Jenner. Her passion is to lead youth groups to create art. Students in the 'Art for the Hospital' club at the University High School of Science & engineering painted these canvases. Upon completion Sushobha Jenner touched up these paintings to give a professional look. As the project was for the Children's Hospital, student participation was one of the key requirements for this project. These artworks definitely put a smile on everyone's faces when they visited the Endocrinology waiting room, CCMC, Hartford, CT
