The Art of Elysium allows children to be creative and explore a wide range of artistic mediums with the help of Volunteer Artists. Through The Art of Elysium Programs, volunteer artists have the opportunity to work with children, adolescents and families in both small and larger group settings for 90-120 minutes in various inpatient and outpatient medical environments. The Art of Elysium provides a wide range of fine and performing arts workshops and activites designed to:

  • Help children cope with the difficult emotional challenges of illness and hospitalization
  • Promote opportunities for growth and development
  • Encourage socialization
  • Provide exposure to various artistic skills and disciplines.

The Art of Elysium’s programs for hospitalized youth include Fine Arts, Fashion Design, Music, Media/Theatre Arts and Arts-Based Self-Esteem Programs.
