Engaging in artistic activities and exploring creative expression can have a powerful impact on the healing process. Exposure to music and participation in art projects during a patient's medical treatment have been shown to promote multiple aspects of wellness.
As part of our commitment to comprehensive cancer care to our patients and their families, Levine Cancer Institute recognizes the importance of programs that promote quality of life and is proud to offer the Healing Arts Program. Activities include:
- Artist in Residence Program - Experienced artists work with patients and family members during treatment to explore creativity and create meaningful art pieces.
- Art and Soul Classes - Patients participate in creative art projects in painting, drawing and mixed-media expression that will relax, inspire and strengthen their artistic spirit and serve as a relaxing, meditative new practice.
- LCI Writing Community - Open to cancer survivors and the friends and family, the Writing Community provides an opportunity to honor life experiences through writing. Only requires a willingness to write and to support other writers.
