The Art League Houston Offers “Healing Art”

Houston, TX

The Art League of Houston offers Healing Art, a program of art classesImage of hands forming shapes with clay. for adults living with severe illnesses including cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and physical disabilities.

Healing Art is the only program of its kind for adults in Houston outside of hospital or clinical settings. Students participate in two ALH sponsored events: The MARTY: A Montrose Art Party held each spring and the Healing Art Gala Silent Auction in the fall. There is a sense of camaraderie in the two Healing Art groups, and the on-going opportunities to exhibit and sell artwork gives students a sense of accomplishment.

Healing Art classes are offered free of charge in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Tuition and art supplies are provided at no cost to the students as a majority are living on fixed incomes.

Healing Art is an ongoing program. For more information, call 713 523 9530.
