Scribbling Sibs at Children’s National Medical Center

At the main campus of Children’s National Medical Center the “Scribbling Sibs” program is designed to better support our patients and families during the summer months. In June, July and August siblings have their own art space, located in the waiting room of our clinic, which provides them with a unique opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings using supplies from our mobile art cart. From drawings of favorite animals and sports teams to self-portraits and inventive creatures that decorate and brighten the clinic walls, it is apparent that children continuously embrace their creativity, spontaneity and imaginativeness in this space. In addition to their individual creations, patients and siblings have worked together to create group murals in the clinic waiting area. Our favorite so far is “Under the Sea,” an ocean themed mural filled with scuba divers, fish, turtles, crabs and a variety of other googley-eyed sea creatures. It has been so much fun to a part of the CNMC team this summer!
