ArtWorks, The Naomi Cohain Foundation
May 11, 2012
I cannot say enough good things about ArtWorks Foundation! They have helped so many of my patients and their families by providing opportunities for creative expression. Engaging in the arts is not only enjoyable, it is an invaluable tool in helping children and families to cope with distress throughout serious illness and hospital experiences. Several patients who used to dread coming to the hospital for transfusions and other procedures now look forward to visits because they know they'll get to create art using materials from our beautiful Surprise!Supplies art cart! Other patients, who were formerly withdrawn, are already talking about what they want to do for next year's Express Yourself show! I am so thankful to ArtWorks Foundation for all the amazing work that they do!!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my work with pediatric patients.

They really understand the powerful impact of the arts for children and families coping with serious illness.

By providing opportunities for creativity, ArtWorks Foundation is helping to empower children and giving them tools to overcome distressing experiences.
