Meet our Partners: Art in Healthcare

Art in Healthcare

“Our vision is ‘Art for every healthcare setting in Scotland’ and our mission is to use visual art to improve health and wellbeing.”

“We value putting the person at the centre of their own health and wellbeing, humanising healthcare environments and the positive health and wellbeing impact of the visual arts. We also value quality, innovation and professionalism and the ideas and ambitions of artists, without whom our work would not be possible.”

Art in Healthcare employs professional artists to provide art activity for a wide range of people, often working with health partners including carers groups, hospices, mental health and dementia support charities, hospitals, sheltered housing and many more.

Using GreatArt materials allows the charity to provide people with the opportunity to really explore and develop their creativity with guidance and support from highly skilled professional artists.  Art in Healthcare art workshops inspire self-expression and help people to interact socially, reduce stress and anxiety, raise self-esteem and enhance their quality of life.  Artists often take along a work of art from the museum-quality Art in Healthcare collection to inspire participants looking at techniques, colours and materials used by professional artists.

Having access to professional quality art materials supplied by GreatArt opens up the full range of possibilities for the many people Art in Healthcare supports and helps them to flourish and take great pride in their success.
