Ohio Arts Council Creative Aging Pilot Program 

We all have a story to tell! Participants will share stories as a group, then illustrate them with guided printmaking techniques in a handmade book. No drawing experience is needed. This 6-week class will culminate with a brunch event where students share their treasured books with family and friends. This class is partially funded by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council. A continental breakfast will be provided by ArtsConnect on the last day.

This special class will only be offered once during Session 2, March 12 - April 16, 2022. Maximum of 8 students. Register early so you don't miss out.
