Seniors interested in drawing and
painting gather each Friday morning at the Senior
Center in the Arts and Crafts Room on the second
floor. A still life setup is provided for subject
matter and occasionally a model is engaged for
portrait and figure studies. No formal
instruction is provided, but members share their
experience and knowledge with one another freely.
Helpful critiques of work are given upon request.
The Group started in the early 90s and
counts more than 20 members this year. We come
from different walks of life and have a variety
of interests, but the passion we have for beauty
and color brings us together, and the goal of a
community of artists helps strengthen our
commitment to one another. We have bloomed into a
cheerful group of friends. Some of us often go to
lunch together after painting, and we share other
retirement interests or family stories with one
The Group periodically exhibits its works in
the Robey Room Gallery downstairs. Our art works
are also on display in the hallway outside the
Arts and Crafts Room.
Friday Art Group meets on Friday morning from 9:00
to 12:00, as well as Monday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.,
in the Arts and Crafts Room opposite the elevator
on the second floor. The Group welcomes all
Senior Center members to visit or join us. If
interested please contact Marion Hansen, Fine Art
Group Chairperson, at (434) 974-5662.
