Children’s Healing Art Project (CHAP) brings the healing power of art to children in crisis and their families through a mobile team of teaching artists working in partnership with hospitals, schools, community organizations and local businesses, creating programs through which children are known for their creativity and ingenuity and not by their disease, diagnosis, or disability. CHAP has created art classes tailored to the needs of the children and families we serve in our partner facilities: Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Center, Knight Cancer Institute and Shriners Hospital for Children.
