Art Therapy and Children with Cancer
Below is a terrific article on the way MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas is using art to help children with cancer express their feelings and cope with their illnesses. The Children's Art Project is an inspirational program full of amazing young artists. You can even purchase some of their gorgeous art as cards and gifts.
Expressing ourselves through art is a primal force and I have witnessed its ability to transform even the most dark and negative emotions into creative expression and light, in my own life, and in the lives of the many children I used to teach.
If you, or someone you love is struggling with cancer, another illness or just with life in general seek out a program in your area that uses Art as Therapy and transform your feelings into a new beginning.
