Art Therapy with Dialysis Patients at Peninsula Health
Since September 2011 art therapist Melissa Banks has been working with patients in the dialysis ward of Peninsula Health (Frankston Campus). Patients participate in discussions about art, learn new drawing and painting techniques, explore with colour and use recycled materials to create art.
Named DialysArt, the program continues with Art Therapists Jennie Wragge and Lorin Randall.
You can purchase a 2019 DialysArt Calendar at the Haemodialysis Ward at Peninsula Health, Frankston Campus or at Cube 37 (Frankston Arts Centre).
