Art on Rounds
We believe that everyone is an artist; creativity is a natural part of being human. We're in touch with it as children, but as adults we tend to forget about our creativity. If the Art on Rounds staff can touch this creative place in someone, allowing them to reclaim it at a time when they are facing a medical crisis, it can be a tremendous healing influence spiritually, if not physically.
Artist Taylor Johnson helps patients use art to express their feelings and provide a creative and emotional outlet that may help their physical healing as well.
Through art, patients and their families are able to express themselves creatively. Families enter into a special relationship, connecting on a level that doesn't need permission. Artistic collaboration removes the differences of age, race, gender and disease; student and teacher become teacher and student and space and time are altered.
