UF Health Shands Arts in Medicine empowers pediatric patients to creatively tell their own stories. Working with professional artists, patients use the arts to normalize their hospital experience, to find comfort, make meaning out of difficult circumstances, and to have fun! Often these engagemets between artists and patients span the entire course of treatment, which can last days, weeks, or years. It is a privilege for our artists in residence to get to know these young artists through their beautiful creations.
A note from the artists:
Thanks for coloring with team Harley! Harley Castoral began collaborating with artist in residence Ricky Kendall in early 2019 at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, they met every week via Zoom to sketch together. This creative collection of drawings are ony a few of the many creations from the brain of Harley and reimagined by Ricky. We hope you enjoy coloring the result. We had a blast making it!
Below is a sampling of those coloring pages, free to save and print.
