For more than 20 years…

Arts For Life has been providing creative programming to pediatric patients and their families since 2001. Our Founding Executive Director recognized the importance and the power of creativity for her sister while she was being treated in the hospital. Since then, tens of thousands of kids have been handed a paintbrush or encouraged to strum a guitar while sitting in a hospital room. Arts For Life has grown exponentially from that first photography lesson, sharing the healing power of the arts over the years and throughout our communities.

To share that incredible impact and to recognize the remarkable patients and families we’ve had the honor to work with over more than two decades, we’re proud to share with you just a few of these artists and their masterpieces from our archives.

If you’d like to learn more of the story of how Arts For Life began, you can find that — along with our Mission and Equity Statements — in our Who We Are pages.
