CARPE offers a sense of freedom and control through artistic expression.Available art mediums range from painting and sculpting to music and movement. These varied activities provide opportunities for increased communication and expression of feelings and can assist by improving social interaction and physical coordination.
Our mission is to identify and develop connections between the creative arts and healing arts that will improve the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of our patients and families. Our goal is to have artists work directly with patients and teach them how to paint, play music, write, sculpt, dance, act and discover their own unique creativity. The art becomes a means for patients and their families to better cope with the anxieties and fears their illness and the hospital environment.
Many of the art pieces created by our patients are available for purchase at from the heART. The proceeds from the sales go to support patient programs, including ours. So click here now, and seize the opportunity to start your own collection of these treasured pieces.
For more information, please contact Carri Ann Wantuchowicz, Creative Arts Programme Coordinator at 682-885-6643 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
