Healing Through the Arts

Mercy Healing Through the Arts program is a series of free art workshops designed to enhance healing for patients and their families. These services complement and integrate traditional medicine so a patient can navigate both treatment and recovery more easily.

Art Therapy

Art therapy is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression is both healing and life-enhancing. You don't need to be creative to participate. All that is required is a desire to learn and enjoy the adventure. In recent years, art has become a powerful tool for those coping with illness by providing a creative form of self-expression and a method for sharing stories of struggle, gratitude, anger, peace and healing. Mercy Healing Through the Arts is supported by the Mercy Health Foundation.
