Mission and Vision

Our Mission

To inspire people impacted by cancer to connect and heal through creative expression.

Our Vision

People everywhere touched by cancer will discover the art of life through creative expression.

What We Do

The Art of Life is passionate about GIVING HOPE to those impacted by cancer. In today’s world, cancer aims to steal our joy and rob us of hope, but we believe that growth and purpose can be found in and through life’s most difficult seasons. Until a cure for cancer is found, the Art of Life will exist to provide a network of support, so that no one ever has to walk the journey alone. We will empower cancer survivors and their families to creatively share their story in a way that gifts hope to those around them. Together we will celebrate life and embrace each moment we are given.
Art of Life GIVES HOPE through 4 distinct programs:
– Paint it Forward Project: Connecting cancer survivors with local arts to co-create works of art that celebrate life and inspire hope.
– Survivor Gathering: Annual healing arts retreat exclusively for cancer survivors to connect, create and celebrate life.
– Art of Life Healing Garden: 3-acre community project designed for ALL to find hope and renewal.
– Community Projects & Workshops: Provides ongoing connection for survivors, family and friends so that no one has to walk the journey alone.
