Our theme this month is Movement. What’s you’re favorite way to get moving?

Jamie: Dancing!
Fred: My favorite movement is actually the symphony. One instrument moves to another and all the instruments come together. Everyone works together to express their art.

What do you love about Arts For Life?

Jamie: I like to do art when I come to the hospital.
Fred: I love the environment, the atmosphere, and that I can help different age groups. I love to teach kids about art and the value of art. I love when I see other Arts For Life teachers. And I also love that we’re able to bring some relief into this environment. When kids start focusing on art they forget about their pain. I love art!
Jamie: ME TOO!!
