As part of the Child Life Department, the art program features a calming and inspiring studio that gives patients and their siblings a chance to leave their hospital room for a while to color, paint, make arts and crafts projects, and let their creative urges run wild.
When patients are unable to leave their rooms, child life staff can take the art to patients’ rooms so they can create a masterpiece at their bedsides. Patients can keep their works of art or, if they’d like, they can donate them to the hospital for a variety of outreach projects.
Ask for more information on how your child can get involved in art projects at Children’s Health. Your care team is always available to answer questions and provide more information.
