    February 7 – February 28, 2017

    The “FUTURE VISIONARIES” Art Exhibition February 2017 will showcase inspirational artwork of young artists in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia Region. Creative & Therapeutic Arts Services at Children National Health System (CNHS) makes a healing impact with patients, families, staff and in the community.  The Creative & Therapeutic Arts team works with other programs in the hospital as well as partners in the community, to offer youth various and unique opportunities to express and share their creative visions. 

    Children's National Health System is the premier provider of pediatric care in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. Each day, our experts give kids the best possible care and the chance to be their happiest, healthiest selves. Because we don’t just want kids to grow up. We want them to grow up stronger.

    Creative & Therapeutic Arts Services has provided programming to patients, families and staff since 1978.  A small but dedicated team of trained professionals works to foster an atmosphere of empowerment and support to our inpatients, outpatients and their families.  We offer colorful creative choices, soothing sounds, imaginative opportunities and inviting galleries and exhibits.
    The mission is to combine the healing power of art, art therapy, music, harp therapy, animal visitations and performing arts to help our patients heal, to assist patients with their pain and symptom relief, empower self-awareness and emotional expression for coping skills, ease anxiety, provide a creative outlet for depressed patients, and enhance family and social relationships.
