By providing educational art programs, we enrich patients’ lives, nurture their minds and spirits, and encourage positive healthcare experiences for children and their families. Arts For Life helps children in four cities across North Carolina.

Arts For Life’s staff members, volunteers, and interns teach the arts to patients for over 280 hours each week. We work with more than 6,200 patients annually.

Our visual art, creative writing, and music programs decrease patient stress and anxiety, keep patients active and engaged, and help families cope with the realities of illness.
