Snow City Arts




Snow City Arts inspires and educates children and youth in hospitals through the arts.

About Us

Whether in the hospital for a long-term stay or a short one, we turn a child’s time to heal into a time to create. Snow City Arts provides workshops in visual arts, music, creative writing, media arts, and theater.

Snow City Arts was founded in 1998, and has provided a studio-quality arts experience to more than 19,000 children in hospitals throughout its history.
