The Art of Elysium
January 27, 2011

When I first met The Art of Elysium, I was working as a Child Life Specialist at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. The Art of Elysium provided a unique opportunity for children to explore their feelings and experiences. It's hard for many children to express themselves in such difficult times...through a painting, a photograph, a song or play...I was able to see children tell their stories in ways they never knew possible.

Being a member of The Art of Elyisum family for 12 years, I have seen the postive impact on both the children and the artists.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

in both my profession and personal lives. The impact of The Art of Elysium has helped to shape my own professional philosophy.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage expansion to other cities outside of Los Angeles and New York City.

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & Refer hospitalized children to The Art of Elysium program.
