Art therapy

Art therapy provides your child with a creative outlet to express emotions, cope with pain and stress, and have fun in the health care setting.

Our art therapists understand the healing value of art and artistic traditions. By applying their special knowledge of human development and psychology, clinical practice, and spiritual and cultural customs, they help children and their families deal with the impact of complex medical conditions on their lives.

Art therapy is provided to patients in the hospital and in select outpatient clinics on the VCU Medical Center campus.
