Starting from a major artist’s artwork in order to create an art therapy project which mingles the expressive power of color with the strength of sound. That’s the aim that the American Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has been achieving for two years through the “Kandinsky Project”, a wide art therapy program inspired by the famous Russian painter, Wassily Kandinsky, with the goal of producing artworks created by young patients who have cognitive or physical impairments. More than 1,500 artworks have been created during last two years, within a re-discovery of the specific kandinskyan artistic style and listening to the music of the beginning of the XX century, connecting art-therapy, music-therapy and educational creativity.
