Our mission is about empowerment, encouragement and creating memorable experiences. Kids & Art teams up children touched by cancer, their siblings, and caregivers with local artists.

We create a network of support by providing regular art sessions, for the child and their care circle during treatment, recovery and bereavement.

  7. 7. Testimonial from a Parent: “Kids & Art presents wonderful programs for children affected by cancer. There is a way that cancer attacks the whole family. Our children suffered through cancer: one got the treatments, the other became isolated. At workshops they were able to work with artists to express themselves wordlessly and respond from their hearts. Later, they went to an auction and their work raised money for the cause. The whole experience was very empowering and healing. Thank you so much for creating this place for kids affected by cancer to shape their world.” - Kate Mayer, Parent
