The PaintFest “was a wonderful way to educate others as to the emotional needs of hospitalized [patients] and to offer the community an opportunity to participate in humanizing the health care experience.”

“Sometimes, words cannot convey our depth of gratitude. This is one of those times. Thank you for sharing the joy of The Foundation for Hospital Art/Pfizer Pediatric Health PaintFest with the patients and employees of Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children. It is a rare occasion when an entire organization can come together to relax and have fun, while still contributing to the fundamental mission of their work, in this case, the children entrusted to our care. The results of PaintFest will brighten the hospital for many years to come, but the memories the event created for our patients, families, and employees will last a lifetime.”

“For over fifteen years I looked at the artwork from the Foundation on display at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite. My daughter was often a patient there and we loved looking at the murals throughout the hospital together. Today, I love volunteering because I do know how much of an impact a bright, colorful piece of art means to a patient, family and staff in a hospital and clinic setting.”

“The focus, the energy and the joy of those who paint at TFHA Paintfests® makes me keep coming back. I’ve experienced this in hospitals, at a prison, in a homeless shelter, with corporations, with high school football players and at many other venues. Even people who have their own troubles focus on the process of painting and forget their problems for a while. It is fun to be a part of something that benefits others and fulfills me.”
