Art is great therapy. You get to tap into your own creativity and transform a blank canvas into a personal expression. In a hectic world, maybe you don’t reserve enough time for yourself to create and ‘just breathe.’
If you’re looking for a creative outlet that also can help others explore art, then our Painting Party for Opening Minds through Art is for you! On February 27, Jenna Beyersdoerfer, aka “The Painting Chick,” will lead our painting party at the Firehouse Grill in Blue Ash where you will create a beautiful reminder to “Just Breathe.” The $35 admission includes all supplies. No prior art experience needed!
Opening Minds through Art is an innovative art program founded by the Scripps Gerontology Center at Miami University. It pairs adults with dementia with volunteers to focus on imagination instead of memory, and strengths instead of lost skills, in creating works of art.
Easterseals Serving Greater Cincinnati recently adapted the program to also include adults with disabilities. Your participation in the painting party will help raise funds to provide these valuable arts experiences to more people that we serve.
