In 2007, Dell Children’s opened its doors and with it a whole world of possibilities. Our hospital provides care to thousands of children from 46 Central Texas counties and beyond. Our high-impact healing environment surrounds children with art, nature and a whole host of healers. Customized care helps meet the needs of each child. In just 6 years, Art of Giving has raised $525,000 for art and music therapy. These therapies are the best non-medicinal healing and pain management tools in modern medicine, and art and music help kids just be kids during long, tough hospital days.

Art of Giving provides a unique opportunity to teach the next generation about philanthropy through the creation of one-of-a-kind works of art. Children work with local artists and our art therapy team. Enjoy an afternoon of fun, food, friends and the joy in teaching the Art of Giving. Patients, artists and children of the Dell Children’s Trust join with our art therapy team to create masterpieces that support our Art and Music therapy programs at Dell Children’s Medical Center.
