passalong program

PassALONG promotes the sharing of art by providing patients with art supplies and materials to create artwork for the next patient staying in their room once they are discharged. The patient will simply take home the art supplies from their PassPACK and leave their artwork in the empty box. The receiving patient will get to keep the artwork and decide if they’d like to sign up for one of our programs. A patient should choose this program if they'd like to participate in a solo program, and if they would prefer making art on their own schedule.

Easy three step process

Sign up here, choose PassALONG as your program. And a PassPACK will then be delivered to your room.

passpals program

PassPALS promotes the sharing of art between two patients in the same hospital to help you build a possible friend and support system in the hospital. PassPALS is similar to a pen pal program -- ArtPass will match the patient up with another patient in the same hospital to act as their PassPal, and both of them will receive a PassPACK.  A patient should choose this program if they'd like to receive a piece of art from their PassPal twice a week, as well share a piece of their artwork twice a week. If ArtPass cannot find them a PassPal, they are welcome to participate in PassALONG.
