This past winter we were lucky enough to be visited by a bunch of new friends from The Center for Creative Works. Using our unglazed plates, tumblers, trays and bowls as their canvases, these terrific artists painted wonderful imagery of landscapes, portraits, favorite animals, flowers, some colorful abstractions and so much more! All these works are set to be auctioned off at the Out the Door: Art Party and Auction on Thursday, May 24th from 5:30p-10p.
The Center for Creative Works is a unique work environment with a goal of developing creative work potential and cultural identity for people with intellectual disabilities.
Creative Works combines supported studio art development with work opportunities-including supported employment options – and community programming. Participants learn and work in drawing and painting, printmaking, ceramics, woodworking, sculpture, textiles, design, music and other media. A staff of mentor artists teach professional materials and techniques, with the goal of developing participants as artists, artisans, and designers. We foster individual expression and skill development, promoting our artists’ work through public exhibitions, art fairs, and other events in the community.
