Hope is committed to supporting our patients and their loved ones with exceptional care, compassion, and dignity.
Help Hope Hospice bring joy to our patients through the gift of art! We invite individuals from our local communities to create or donate existing artwork that will be distributed to patients living in Tri-Valley care facilities. The 2021 art drive is open through July 16.
We’ve made some adjustments to the Works of Hope program in its second year to help clarify what works best for the hospice setting. Below is an interest form that helps us facilitate the program. Please complete the fields and upload a photo of your intended donation. Our team will reach out to you to communicate next steps.
All skill levels are welcome
You don’t have to be Da Vinci to bring joy through art!
Types of artwork
The program is open to all types of artwork with the following qualities in mind.
Sizes: Items of about 4×4 inches that can be displayed on a bedside table or other small space are ideal. Ready-to-hang wall art should be less than 21 inches on the longest edge.
Mediums: Paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures and other 3D objects. Please see notes below about connecting with our program facilitators to discuss your work.
Subjects: Many of our elderly patients are living with at least some level of dementia and may have difficulty understanding abstract images. Landscapes and simple representations are best for the hospice patient. Our patients come from a variety of religious backgrounds or may not claim any religious affiliation; since we aren’t always sure of an individual’s spiritual connection, it’s best to avoid pieces with distinct religious themes.
I’m not artistic! How else can I help?
Not artsy? No problem. Here are some other ways you can help with this program.
Recruit friends, family, fellow artists, or members of the community to participate.
Volunteer to handwrite friendly letters to accompany the artworks.
