From our Teaching Artist workshops and general celebrations of our Young Artists and our programming, there is never a dull moment with ArtWorks!
“Banjo is a therapy dog that visits patients in the hospital. He made me smile when I was very sad, due to my consistent seizures. Knowing that a dog can visit you, sit on your bed, and make you smile, makes your stay at the hospital more pleasant.” Happy #NationalPuppyDay! #ArtWorksDaily
Last week, ArtWorks visited and toured our partner hospital, Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center! Pictured above is Gabrielle Grimaldi Bellettieri, Creative Arts Therapist in front of their beautiful lobby’s mural!
Today’s #ArtWorksDaily highlights Keila who shares, “Art lets me express how I feel because it doesn’t have to be perfect, it just lets you do whatever you feel.”
Today is #WorldPoetryDay and to celebrate we have Zachary’s beautiful poem about The Valerie Fund Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Saint Barnabas! #ArtWorksDaily
The #ChildLifeSpecialists at The Brooklyn Hospital Center shared this sweet photo of Young Artist, Omari age 8, who participated in a Collage Workshop facilitated by our Teaching Artist, Michael Albert! #ChildLifeMonth #CreativeArtsTherapyWeek
