At AAH classes, participants are introduced to a different way of seeing through guided lessons and exploration. Classes, held outside the hospital environment at AAH’s Studio space, provide instruction in a non-judgmental environment. Classes are 3 hours in length, providing time for patient-artists to become immersed in the moment. Students explore their innate artistic ability as they learn to use a variety of artwork materials and equipment. Using their new skills as a means of self-expression enhances their sense of well-being.
