Growing ArtFULL! Underway!

Paramount Education and Outreach has been hosting arts classes in three facilities this year as part of a national grant from Aroha Philanthropies!  The goal of the grant is to identify the most effective ways of building skill-building arts programs for those over 55.  Here’s a peek inside each of these classes, where magic is happening.  Teaching artists Ken Ferber and Sandy Fabian are guiding fifteen new clay artisans at Good Shepherd Apartments, Marcelyn Smale and Garrett Lathe are lifting choral voices with over thirty at Benedict Village, and David DeBlieck and Leigh Dillard are leading creative dance at Whitney.  These classes are helping Aroha identify best practices and will impact programs nationwide!
