ABOUT THE HEALING ART PROGRAM
In 1990, Patrick Palmer founded the Healing Art program, a free Healing Art program at Art League Houston for adults living with HIV/AIDS. In 1995, Art League provided additional Healing Art classes to serve the needs of adults living with other severe illnesses including cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and physical disabilities.
Healing Art is one of the only program of its kind for adults in Houston, outside of hospital or clinical settings. Art League Healing Art classes are offered free of charge in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Each Friday, September to May, two Healing Art classes are presented in four-hour sessions. The HIV/AIDS and Cancer Related Illnesses Class is taught by Rebecca Bass, and Emily Sloan instructs the MS and Physical Disabilities Class. Tuition and art supplies are provided at no cost to the students as a majority are living on fixed incomes.
Healing Art students participate in two ALH sponsored events: The MARTY: A Montrose Art Party held each spring and the Healing Art Gala Silent Auction in the fall. There is a sense of camaraderie in the two Healing Art groups, and the on-going opportunities to exhibit and sell artwork gives students a sense of accomplishment.
