KAC in the Community

Art Angels Program

The Art Angels Program was established in 2001 as a partnership with Lakeland HealthCare to provide opportunities for oncology and pediatrics patients to make art during treatment. The healing value of art was recognized in ancient Greece by Hippocrates.  Two days a week KAC Art Therapist Holly Garces facilitates art projects so that patients and their families can focus on the creative process as a method of stress and pain relief. The program is supported in part by a grant from Berrien Community Foundation.
