Arts in Medicine

Arts in Medicine logo The Arts in Medicine program gives patients the chance to express themselves through art. It integrates literary, performing and visual arts into fun, family-centered activities to help children and adults cope with their medical condition and hospital stay.

Some of our programs include:

  • The Visual Arts: Painting, arts and crafts, jewelry making
  • The Literary Arts: Creative writing, personal journaling, poetry, story time
  • The Performing Arts: Music, dance
  • Design: Patient art gallery and other rotating art exhibits in select locations throughout the hospital

Artist Volunteers Needed 

Artist volunteers are trained and supervised by the program coordinator to provide creative arts experiences to pediatric and adult patients and families.
