Arts in Healthcare
Connect with the healing power of creativity.
COMPAS makes it easy to bring the arts into medical environments. Working with people in hospitals and care facilities has its unique obstacles, but COMPAS is well versed in dealing with those challenges.

We lead art-making in group settings with inpatients and their family members or with outpatient groups, for example a cancer support group or an eating disorder group. Our performers brighten the day during lunch hours or through in-hospital studios. We also love to make art with individuals at their bedside if they're too sick to join a group.
We have a long history of working with Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. The work COMPAS does with Children’s Hospital and its Arts Partners won the top award for "Use of Art in the Patient Environment" from the International Academy of Design & Health.
