Nurturing the spirit of children and families through the arts
Arts for Healing programs support the child and family in coping with illness, traumatic events and the healthcare experience through engagement with the arts. Artists and therapists foster resiliency in children and families through all phases of care. Therapeutic interventions and the use of creative arts result in learning, self-expression, enhanced community and quality of life. Our team values a collaborative and multi-disciplinary approach that enriches overall understanding and the scope of creative expression.
Arts for Healing programs benefit patients from birth to young adults and their families. Daily art groups offer families a welcome respite from medical concerns. Programs support their relationship to each other and to the hospital community. Patients share their accomplishments with family, friends, caregivers and their community.
