About Art League Houston's Healing Art Program
Founded by Houston artist Patrick Palmer in 1990 and hosted by Art League Houston, The Healing Art program was created for adults living with HIV+/AIDS. In 1995, ALH provided additional Healing Art classes to serve adults living with other severe illnesses including cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and physical disabilities. The ALH Healing Art program is the only one of its kind for adults in Houston, outside of hospital or clinical settings. ALH Healing Art classes are offered free of charge. ALH teaching artists Kermit Eisenhut and Emily Sloan instruct Healing Art students in painting, collage, drawing, and mixed media. In addition, ALH provides Healing Art students with opportunities to exhibit and sell their art each year.
About the Art League School
Over the last 45 years, the Art League School has provided Houston-area residents with a venue for both the novice and professional artists to develop technical skills and further their artistic exploration. Led by dedicated faculty and experienced artists, classes are held throughout the week and have limited enrollment to ensure that each student has ample opportunity for questions and discussion. Classes include: drawing, mixed media, jewelry, and watercolor, artist development, sculpture, and ceramics.
