Hold ‘n’ Hands Help ‘n’ Hearts is a legacy program designed to create keepsake ceramic handprints for the families of cancer patients at no charge. Our studio is located 3 miles from City of Hope which, allows the handprints to be taken at the convenience of the patient at our art studio or we can go to any local hospital as needed. We complete the design of the art piece to the specifications of the family and patient. In addition, our intent is to provide a fun, therapeutic and artistic getaway; patients and their families can enjoy festive gatherings, painting parties, impression events and other inspiring experiences through the gift of art. All of our handprints are crafted to last a lifetime, and we at Paint ‘n’ Play Art Studio only use products made in the United States. It is our desire to inspire families to memorialize the people they love who are being treated for cancer with this very special program. To schedule a legacy handprint or for further information and pledges, please call our studio.
