The creation of art can be a life-affirming, healing experience. Professional artist and teacher Tehila Eisenstat has seen first-hand how the process of making art helps patients cope with disease, pain and stress. She teaches painting to El Camino Hospital patients through her weekly Creative Expressions classes.
Tehila developed this program as a way of sharing the joy of art with people in need. She welcomes patients with all levels of painting experience into her class. By carefully demonstrating painting techniques, giving students individual attention, and fostering a non-judgmental, supportive environment, Tehila encourages her students to create paintings with depth and movement, and to find their passion and style. In the process, these art classes have become a wonderful support group, giving the participants an opportunity to focus together on color and shape rather than needles and pain.
