Art Show Information
When you think of art and artistic talent, many ideas may come to mind. The Passages Creative Learning Center has a vibrant art program which focuses on canvas, photography, and ceramic art, as well as other areas of artistic expression depending on the interests and talents of our artists. For the men and women who participate, the outcomes far exceed expectations. We see adults, some with very limited verbal communication skills, able to communicate through their art. We see adults with severe anxiety challenges able to relax as they express themselves through their art. And we also see a spirit in day programming that has a positive impact on the men and women we serve, as well as on staff.
Passages Art Show was introduced in 2011 to help bring revenue to the art program and to showcase the amazing talent of the individuals served by Passages.
This past March marked the 5th annual Art show. Over 100 pieces were on display and we are happy to announce each and every piece was bided on and sold. We were able to raise over $3600 for our art program. Proceeds from the previous year’s shows have been used to purchase items such as pottery wheels, slab rollers, canvases, art supplies and much more.
Next year’s event is already being planned for March 8th, 2018. If you would like some further information or be part of this great event, contact Tammy Nickolson to be sure to be put on next year’s mailing list.
