Kids & Art Foundation promotes an integrated model, one where children with cancer benefit from participation in the arts as part of the regular treatment plan.
We seek to improve well-being during treatment, as survivors, and in bereavement. Together we use art for healing, to empower, encourage, and create memorable experiences.
