Patty’s Adults’ Arts Program
The Adults’ Arts program is a 3-hour workshop that runs year-round, on average twice per week, for participants of all skill levels.
More than 193 different participants attend throughout the year with about 30 participants taking part in each workshop. Scheduled art classes are offered weekly which focus on the use of different materials and creative techniques. Meals and refreshments are served at each workshop. Participants also have access to computers, instruction in digital arts, and a telephone. In the spirit of “self-help”, participants are encouraged to keep the studio in good order, assist with meals, and clean up.
Our goal is to create a safe space for people to get together and make art. We also provide peer advocacy to help participants deal with some of the issues they face, including tenant harassment, illegal eviction, human rights complaints and acquiring assisted mobility devices.
