About Snow City Arts

Snow City Painter

Snow City Arts provides one-on-one instruction in the visual arts, creative writing, music, theater and film making and to patients at Rush Children’s Hospital, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, and Children’s Hospital University of Illinois.

As doctors and nurses care for a child’s medical needs, Child Life specialists, therapists, social workers and other hospital employees address the psychosocial needs of hospitalized children. Snow City Arts augments those services in each hospital we serve by addressing a child’s developmental and educational needs through the arts. Our teaching artists typically work with an individual child at his or her bedside.
