Our Covid Response

As the global community works to combat the novel coronavirus, we are staying true to our mission to provide healing through the arts to pediatric cancer families when they need us most wherever they are in their treatment cycle.

Our goal has always been to provide fully inclusive, free, and accessible programs to children with cancer and their families.

However, during these difficult and uncertain times, we recognize the gap in services that exist for all children dealing with chronic or life-threatening conditions. Kids & Art is using our creative power and experience to ease the emotional pressure and psychosocial issues that contribute to trauma.

Childhood cancer and illness do not discriminate; Kids & Art is here to serve all those in need through positive, creative, child-centered programming and support.

Over 10 years of experience in serving immunocompromised and medically fragile children makes us uniquely situated to address the needs of our broader community during these uncertain times.

We have utilized our expertise at modifying our creative arts programming to fit environments including outpatient waiting rooms, infusion clinics, playrooms, and bedsides, and have incorporated that into our virtual art workshops and parent support groups.

Our programs have been implemented at renowned medical centers including Stanford Children’s Hospital, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, Kaiser Oakland, and Kaiser Santa Clara.

Our virtual footprint has helped us provide art workshops beyond the San Francisco Bay Area. We are happy to welcome new patient families from Fresno, Michigan, Alaska, and New Jersey, to name a few.

Virtual Art

We support all children with cancer, survivors, and siblings. Our programs are inclusive and appropriate for children as young as 3 through adolescence.

Our Workshop Process

We invite participants to take part in a guided art project led by our program managers. The projects are thoughtfully planned and require minimal art materials. The workshops provide a space for creativity and fun where we hope to inspire, encourage and bring a sense of togetherness.

Our Virtual Art Workshops provide opportunities for socialization, creativity, stress relief and self-expression.


Studies show that engaging in any creative process is healing. Whether you make a simple drawing or collage, look at art or talk about it, creativity and the arts can help you.

PARENT SUPPORT GROUP

We started an Amaeyzing Parent Support Group to help parents connect with and support each other as we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic.

We meet virtually for an hour every month (3rd Saturday or Sunday of the month from 2:30-3:30pm), drawing in experts as speakers to discuss a variety of topics ranging from medical care and precautions amidst COVID-19, to nutrition, wellness, education and siblings.

We offer a safe and confidential space for parents to share their concerns and questions, and receive guidance on best practices from our guest speakers.

Our Parent Support Group is based on the basic principles of trust, respect and reciprocity. Parents who come to our support group count on each other to listen openly, respond honestly and always act with compassion. Parents know that all information shared in the support group is confidential and never discussed outside the group setting. Parents provide non-judgmental support to one another. Together, parents learn from one another about ways to strengthen their families.
