Art Therapy Program Expanded for Patient Convenience

Discover the healing power of art by participating in Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center's Art Therapy Program. We welcome patients, families, and caregivers to express themselves through a variety of media including drawing, painting, collage, and sculpture. All sessions are led by an art therapist who helps individuals learn to use art as an alternative mode of communication, personal exploration, and self expression.

Art Therapy is engaging in the creation of art with the help of an art therapist to assist with emotional, physical healing and growth. Anyone can benefit from art therapy, it does not depend upon talent or technical ability.
