About

Do you have a passion for art? Would you like to share it with others? Art from the Heart is a way to introduce (or reintroduce) painting to patients nearing the end of life. This therapeutic endeavor allows patients to exercise fine motor skills, make choices, tell, stores, focus on a task, and express themselves in ways they never dreamed. The finished product can be shared with the patient's family and remembered as a poignant gift at the end of a long journey.

Volunteers can make their own schedule and visit patients wherever they reside - at home, in assisted living, care homes, or a nusing facility. We will provide the necessary supplies, including an Inspiration Binder with photographs of familiar objects that inspire recreation. All you need to do is encourage and inspire!
