We are committed to providing collaborative art experiences that go beyond borders, cultures and languages for children with long term hospital stays, children who are challenged by social difficulties and children who desire to help children by actively providing group art experiences and installations. We provide collaborative art experiences that generate global awareness and provide children with an understanding of different communities by using art as the tool for individual and collaborative expression. We believe in making children smile and laugh while participating in art experiences. We believe that a patch works.
