How We Help
The theory that art can play a significant role in the recovery process is at the heart of the Arts As Healing program. We provide a creative outlet for cancer patients, their loved ones, and those who care for them. The closed-session studio classes offer an inviting environment for artistic expression where patients are free to explore a new method of communicating their innermost thoughts. Through Arts As Healing, patients find a joyous release for untapped artistic expression and relief from focusing on their illness.
Our goal is to reach 5,000 patients, their loved ones and caregivers and to have a permanent space by 2022.
The community I’ve found at Arts As Healing has been instrumental in helping me keep my head above murky water during an incredibly difficult time. The friendship, laughter, and art buoy my soul and keep me afloat.
