Art Therapy at Benioff Children's works closely with the physical rehab department - and we're always looking for new ways to surprise patients with their ability to create. This week Benioff artist Hayley made her own Jackson Pollock splatter painting, and she's on the road to making many more exciting pieces of artwork.
Our creative arts team knows each child's identity expands much further than that of "hospital patient". In this video, watch Fernanda express her talents and personality in her rendition of Fight Song.
Being far from home many of our patients are missing their furry friends and companion critters. Enter...The Variety Show! Recently one teen patient created a new on-going segment called Pet Profiles! All around Benioff Children's Hospital families and staff are encouraged to call in to the show and share about their pets. It's creativity meets community and we've gotten to know some really adorable pets with big personalities. The Variety Show is every Wednesday at 3pm on Kaleidoscope-Child Life TV!
