Foundation For Hospital
Art Makes It Possible


Since 1984, The Foundation for Hospital Art has been dedicated to softening the hospital environment with colorful paintingswall murals and ceiling tiles


Our dream to reach patients and medical staffs "in all the hard places" is in full bloom.

Hard places are those areas where patients and medical staffs are working under stress for long periods of time...where hope is in the air...where life-dreams are challenging...where prayer expresses the thoughts and hopes of your soul. Adding color and scenes from nature in blank spaces can turn a bleak depressing treatment room into a room of hope.

There are numerous ways for you to become involved in our mission.  Whether you are organizing a large event for hundreds or if you are looking for a way to personally volunteer, we need your help.  The patients need your help.  Please consider joining our "Painting Army" and spreading joy through a paintbrush. 

You can help by planning your own event, volunteering in our studio or even introducing us to your nearest hospital, nursing home, clinic or community health center

Volunteers paint pre-drawn, color-coded designs at PaintFest® events held in a variety of settings around the world.  The completed artwork is then donated to needy healthcare facilities on behalf of the sponsor.
