Creative Therapy: Art

Nemours Children's Specialty Care, Downtown Orlando

The Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Orlando, is grateful for our creative volunteers who share their passion and bring smiles to our children and families.

Creativity of any kind — doing arts and crafts, listening to music, or writing a story — helps kids explore and identify feelings, deal with emotions, and even get better, faster.

In fact, it’s been well documented that creative therapy can help:
  • improve cognitive skills
  • express feelings
  • increase awareness of others/self
  • enhance emotional/physical well being
  • improve self-satisfaction
  • manage pain
  • improve speech and language skills
  • and more

Art Programs

We’re fortunate to have a lively creative arts program that include dedicated volunteers and local artists lead the kids in painting, drawing, and other fun activities in the waiting areas.
