Older adults seeking a creative outlet have a new option at the New Lebanon Branch of the Dayton Metro Library. The Ohio Arts Council recently awarded a grant to the Dayton Metro Library and 14 other Ohio-based organizations, to create hands-on arts experiences tailored to the needs and interests of older adults. Local teaching artist Teresa Olivarria will lead free classes at the New Lebanon Branch Library, 715 W. Main Street, for adults age 55+. While the class is free, advance registration is required.
Daydreaming on Paper - New Lebanon Branch Library
Thursdays, May 5-June 9, 9:30-11:30 a.m.
Participants in this 6-week collage/journaling class will explore themes using a combination of found, altered and created art. Cut and torn images are adhered to journal pages and embellished with pen and ink as desired. An exhibit with public reception concludes the class on Saturday, June 18, 2:00-4:00 p.m..
“This class is a wonderful opportunity for adults to learn from a professional teaching artist and have fun exploring their creativity in a comfortable setting,” said Julie Buchanan, Older Adult Services Librarian. “All skill levels are welcome and complete beginners are especially encouraged to give it a try.”
Class size is limited to 15 participants. For more information or to register, call (937) 463-BOOK or register on the Events Calendar at DaytonMetroLibrary.org. The program is made possible by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council.
