Throughout the year, the ArtWorks community meets a Young Artist from one of our programs who has used the creative and performing arts to help them cope with their illness.

June 2016 ARTIST OF THE MONTH: Joshua
Age 21


We are SO excited to introduce June’s Artist of the Month and a long-time ArtWorks Young Performer who has been with us since 2005–Joshua (21)!

Josh’s first performance with ArtWorks was in 2005 at Express Yourself when he sang “For Good” with his Music Therapist from Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center ( Since then Josh has participated in several Express Yourself performances including this past Express Yourself-NY 2016 where he sang a beautiful duet with ArtWorks Young Performer Chelsea! Stay tuned for the video of this amazing performance!

my family and friends. I have been proud to perform each year for them at Express Yourself, and I am excited each year to be a part of it. There is nothing like a good song!”

Every year, Joshua’s performance touches the hearts of the ArtWorks family! Take a look at some of Joshua’s moments in the spotlight on our YouTube channel:
