The process of creativity has often been linked to healing and wellness. Art not only engages our hands, but our minds and souls.
I love creating art! I don’t want to leave. Where else can you get a bed, warm meals and we get to make art.Adult Mental Health
Since 2003 Two Rivers Gallery has taken visual arts programming to the University Hospital of Northern BC in Prince George.
Art Heals is facilitated by professional artists and arts educators as an outreach and occasionally in-house program.
I love art heals. I am saving all the art I create to give to my son because I want him to know how hard I am working at becoming drug- free so I can keep him.Youth Detox
Since its inception, Art Heals is delivered on a regular basis in the Paediactric & the Adolescent Psychiatric Assessment Units at the Hospital. In 2011 we added the clients in the Nechako Youth Treatment Program to our Art Heals participants and in 2013, due to an overwhelming interest, Art Heals was expanded to involve clients in the Adult Psychiatric Unit and Adult Detox.
During Art Heals, while I was creating art I forgot about my pain for two hours.Adult Mental Health
Art Heals offers people of all ages a supportive environment, opportunities for self-expression, a diversion from the monotony of a health care facility and the joy of creative play.
