Picture This! is an exhibition of work created by participants in HCP’s Access and Community Education program with the Periwinkle Arts In Medicine Program at Texas Children's Hospital Cancer and Hematology Centers (both Main and West Campus) and The Quality of Life Program in the Renal Department at Texas Children’s Hospital. HCP’s teaching artists work with patients on a variety of projects aimed at engaging creativity and exploring key learning topics, which encourage motor, emotional and developmental skills. The program enables young patients to focus on cultivating imagination while learning new technologies, art practices, tools, and skills that cross multiple disciplines. The Picture This! program has successfully stimulated dialogue and offered meaningful photography education in the healthcare setting for more than a decade.
A selection of this artwork has been part of the Making A Mark exhibition, an exhibition of art by children with cancer and blood disorders, presented by The Periwinkle Foundation.
