Michigan State players and coaches spent part of Sunday creating artwork in partnership with the Foundation for Hospital Art.
Each player and coach worked on their own painting that included a personal message to hospital staff on the back.
"Most of us are trying to channel our inner Picasso today," junior forward Thomas Kithier said. "It's just a good way for us to take our minds off basketball and help healthcare workers and show how much we appreciate them."
The team delivered the paintings to staff at the Sparrow Hospital Children's Center in Lansing.
Michigan State (8-4, 2-4 Big Ten) visits Iowa Thursday night.
