Art from the heart

Fond Memories
10 Apr 2015 | From 'Nifty Rabbit' of Singapore

This painting was done in memory of the artist's dear Irish friend, Mary Landy. It is one of the several artworks shown during the heART's 5th Anniversary Exhibition with the theme "Journey. Arts".

This art-making support group for cancer survivors receiving treatment at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital was started in October 2009 by the Department of Psychological Medicine. In a supportive and non-threatening environment, the participants are able to enjoy and benefit from the therapeutic process of art-making. Many of the participants have no previous art background and have since discovered their passion and talent for art.

heART has organised many art-making activities including art exhibitions, community art projects, decorating the wards with patients’ paintings and printing the paintings into calendars.

The programme is under KKheART, set up in 2012 under the Department of Psychological Medicine with the aim of enhancing the holistic care for our patients.
