SJCS Artists Featured at Children’s National Hospital

Since May, St. John’s Art Options artwork has been brightening the hallways at Children’s National Hospital in DC! Nearly 100 works are split between the first and third floors of the hospital. Being featured at the hospital is great exposure for the artists. All the art is available for sale. For more information on pricing and ways to purchase, complete the Art Inquiry Form, or email art-options@sjcs.org.

ART Options is an arts-infused program designed to support the development of employment, social, communication and life management skills for young adults of all abilities in the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia. Participants use their innate talent and community experiences to create works of art. Participants engage with the arts community through classes, volunteering, and visiting exhibits and museums. These experiences contribute to an artistic exchange and enhance the artists’ career development. All Art Options artists learn promotional skills, in addition to fine arts training. All works are available for sale, with seventy-five percent of proceeds going directly to the artist and twenty-five percent used to purchase supplies and grow the program.
