Our Artist in Residence, Diana Gibson, provides varied therapeutic art activities to enhance expression of feelings and promote positive coping skills. Diana assesses the current emotional state, needs and abilities of her participants and customizes a therapeutic art intervention for them.
Diana also works with families in "legacy building." Legacy building is designed for families who will lose or have lost a child. The art therapist works with parents, siblings and, when possible, the patient, to create a lasting memory and piece of art to commemorate their child/family. The results are unique and personal art projects that enable the family to have a special remembrance of their child. Diana receives her referrals of patients and siblings through our Child Life department.
Referrals of patients and siblings are received through our Child Life department as well as other medical staff.
