Welcome! We're so glad you're here!

At Arts For Life, we believe ART IS FOR EVERYONE.

For almost two decades, Arts For Life has been operating with the mission of bringing arts education and engagement to pediatric patients and their families. By meeting them where they are — in the hospital — we enrich patients’ lives, nurture their minds and spirits, and encourage positive healthcare experiences for all.

While meeting and being with people in the hospital will always be a part of Arts For Life’s mission, we also want to think BIGGER. What if we could meet patients and families — and creative kids of all ages — where they are all the time, not just when they’re in the hospital? What if we could meet them in their living rooms, in their cars, in the middle of the night when they can’t sleep?

This is why we created Arts For Life Anywhere: to ensure that ART CAN HAPPEN ANYWHERE.

On this site, you’ll find all kinds of resources to ignite and nurture creativity, all developed and curated by a team of people with combined decades of experience teaching and creating art and music with kids. 

Here’s what you’ll find: 


As you explore the site, we suggest the Blog as a starting point. This is where we’ll connect you with resources from across the web — everything from games to virtual experiences to books and articles– all crowdsourced and curated by our team.


The Lessons page features a selection of tried-and-true original art lessons that we’ve developed, used, and improved through the years we’ve taught them at our art tables and bedside studios in the hospital. These lessons will often coordinate with video demonstrations and focus on unique projects that use simple materials you are likely to have in your house. 

Video Archive

The Videos page is where you’ll find our archive of art and music demonstrations by Arts For Life team members.
