Watson Clinic Cancer Center - Arts in Medicine
Looking for volunteers who are comfortable and already skilled in various simple craft/art projects such as beading, crocheting, sewing and/or drawing. Volunteers engage patients and family members to participate in art/craft projects to help with relaxation while visiting the center for cancer care. The emphasis is more about engaging the patient then the actual craft/art project.
