A Winning Trio
With the Banner Project a great success, artists from City Artists at Work and The Artists Archive of the Western Reserve joined together with Frontlines Services, an assessment and intervention organization to create four workshops for the clients from social services in monotype, painting, card creation and keepsake box design.
Although the weather on Saturday, February 21st was nippy, creativity was not hindered for the twenty clients who participated and the associates from Frontline Services who cheered them on. One of the men in the monotype workshop remembered that he had taken an art course years ago while another client expressed the powerful idea that part of herself disappears in each work she creates.
Getting to interact with this group of homeless individuals is indeed a privilege and a joy. These workshops continue developing a new understanding and deepened respect for all individuals.
Clients had the options of taking their art with them or displaying them at a fundraising event at the 78th Street Galleries within the year.
