Art with a Heart partners with MOCA for the ninth year to support children in the hospital (FCL August 6th)

Art serves as an outlet for pain and distracts kids from their hospital stay.

Art comes in all forms and as any artist will tell you it comes from the heart. For children in the hospital, art is so much more than a fun activity. It provides a distraction from pain, helps them express themselves during a stressful time, and it's a part of their healing process. 

One group that knows this is Art with a Heart and for the 8th year in a row they have partnered with the MOCA for an amazing exhibit that you can go see. 

Brooke McKinney with Art with a Heart, and Hajar Hussein one of the artists, visited Alex and Curtis to tell them all about the partnership and what it means.
