Healing Art at Flagler Hospital

by | Apr 18, 2022

We are excited to share the our latest work at Flagler Health+ / Flagler Hospital entitled “The Journey Home.” and “Look Within” (in the order shown). From the beginning these murals felt very aligned with our mission of healing through art.

According to Schripps Affliated Medical Group’s article “The Mental Health Benifits of Art,” Art therapy can relieve stress for adults and kids alike. There is a positive connection between art and mental health—artistic activities such as sculpting, painting, or drawing are known to lower stress levels and promote mental calmness. Creating art takes your mind off of your everyday life and provides a relaxing distraction. Worries are set aside as you focus on the detail of the art you are creating. The benefits of this mental relief is one reason why art therapy is used to treat PTSD. 

Similarly, we believe that viewing art has health benefits including the ability to encourage and inspire positive change in a viewers life.
