Program Successes
Our writing classes are popular and serve a consistent and growing group of women.
Description
We currently offer seven to ten, two-hour classes per week in a variety of arts to women from diverse backgrounds. These include: watercolor, collage, fiber arts, mosaics, visual/creative writing, yoga and poetry, Each class is led by an artist-teacher, who is a professional in her specific discipline. The artist-teacher works with the women as a group and individually. 40-50 individuals attend classes throughout a given month. The community that develops among the participants helps women gain confidence as they develop new skills, the arts, and friendships in a safe, encouraging environment. We have expanded our class offerings and days.
