During the once-a-month two-hour Sunday afternoon sessions in the AVA Schleicher Family Children’s Studio, Geisel students facilitate hands-on arts activities with support and guidance from AVA’s teaching faculty.
Geisel students and program participants alike explore the transformative and healing powers art-making opportunities provide while interacting in a nonclinical setting.
It is the intent of the program that children will have a healthy and respective dialogue with passionate and energetic medical students. Through this community interface, Art for Kids strives to have children and the students alike learn more about:
- The impact of chronic health issues faced by children,
- The social issues that come with living and caring for those living with chronic health issues, and
- Community resources and supports available to the children and their families.
