If your child is admitted to the pediatric oncology unit at Providence Children’s Hospital, you can expect that he or she will receive advanced cancer treatment, as well as a healing dose of art. Four afternoons a week, artists from an organization called Creative Kids invite children with cancer into the hospital’s art and digital media studios.

Together, they work on painting and printmaking projects, plus graphic-design pieces. If your child is in isolation, or is not well enough to leave his or her room, an artist can make a bedside visit. The purpose of this program, called Project AIM (Arts in Motion), is to incorporate art therapy into children’s traditional treatment regimens, to help them navigate the often-frightening journey through cancer.
