Arts Programming

Collaborating with our diverse local arts community, Boston Children's offers unique programming in a variety of disciplines. Art activities on the units bring cheer to the bedside and playrooms on each floor. Creative, cultural experiences like these help to reduce stress, spark imagination, and offer a means of self expression.

Art Cart
The Child Life Art Specialist visits inpatient floors 3 days a week with a variety of creative projects to offer to the patients.

Ongoing projects by local artists that bring unique art experiences to patients and families. Current projects include creative writing and video art. 

"The View From Here" Poetry Book
A collaborative project between Spring 2011 Artist-in-Residence Ian Schimmel and the patients of the hospital. Download "The View From Here".

Artful Adventures
Monthly workshops with Museum of Fine Arts staff that offer hands-on cultural enrichment to Boston Children’s Hospital. Activities are inspired by the museum’s collection of art and objects.
