Visual arts include creative art forms such as drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, clay modelling, etc. These art forms are also powerful media through which we can communicate information about rare diseases and generate awareness not only about the diseases, but also about the trials and tribulations of rare disease patients. Art is a healing tool through which people can convey and communicate their thoughts, emotions and experiences. For adults and children with rare diseases, art can serve as a therapeutic medium for expressing their struggles and frustrations while dealing with their diseases and also help with their emotional and psychological healing.
