Health Education Art
Health Education Art or H.E.ART is a community health & wellness partnership between Pullman Regional Hospital’s Center for Learning & Innovation (PRH/CLI) & WSU’s Children Center (WSU-CC). HEART’s goal is helping children understand and process the COVID-19 pandemic through art by providing children with a vehicle to help them adapt to change and engage in learning and express themselves when they can’t find the words.
The photos below feature a variety of projects, including Petri Dish Creations, Citizen Scientist Observation Art, and Masterpieces of Mother Nature.
This gallery features artwork that is all about emotions, self-care, caring for others, and things we can do to relax or calm ourselves.
