'Life's a Canvas' uses art to help spread knowledge about early cancer detection

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Hundreds of novice artists learned from the pros Thursday night, but more important than the right brushstroke was the fact that knowledge is power with cancer.

"Life's a Canvas" held its annual event at Baton Rouge General's Bluebonnet Boulevard campus.

The focus was on knowledge about early detection, hope and survival.

Reporter Elizabeth Vowell and actor Bryan Batt from Madmen served as emcees.
