In collaboration with art therapists and medical professionals, the Splashes of Hope artists strive to create customized murals that address the needs and goals of the patients of each institution.
Murals are created using the individual themes, colors, and images chosen by the healthcare staff and the artists, to stimulate the healing process.
Splashes of Hope paintings are used in medical settings as tools for pain management, therapeutic distraction, soothing visualization, and focal points during necessary procedures.
