“Patiently Made” Program Offers a Creative Outlet for Young Artists

Originally intended as an effort to personalize the space at the newly renovated east wing of Cincinnati Children’s College Hill Campus, a new gallery called “Patiently Made” is proving that art can be a therapeutic outlet for young patients, while also helping to break down stigmas surrounding mental illness.

Developed by the Patient and Family Advisory Council at Cincinnati Children’s Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, “Patiently Made” features artwork, photography and jewelry created by former or current patients ages 10–17. The mission of the group behind the gallery is to use art to send a positive message about mental illness by connecting with the community, empowering the artists and inspiring creative thinking.

The Patiently Made offerings will be available for viewing and purchase throughout the month of May at the Sharonville Fine Arts Center. All proceeds will go directly to the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
