Dignity Health Mercy & Memorial Hospitals join with the National Institute of Health and hundreds of health care organizations in recognizing the value of the creative process and its impact on mental, emotional and physical well-being. Art for Healing offers members of the community opportunities to experience the healing benefits of art-making and creative expresiion in the Art & Spirituality Center.
Art for Healing provides opportunities for art-making, laughter, writing, music and other creative experiences free of charge. It is our hope that each participant may become practiced in the skills of letting go, living in the moment, artful reflection and relaxation. All programs are led by experienced facilitators and they are for persons 18 and older, unless otherwise noted, who are seeking a respite from stress or healthcare concerns.
