The Arts Center received lots of notoriety for our recent ArtSpark festival but behind the scenes there are many other important programs and work continuing on a daily basis. A long-awaited video documentary on one of our Art for Life programs has just been released and illustrates the powerful effect art can have people’s wellbeing especially elders living in senior care centers.

Tree of Life: Traditional Paper Cutting, Nostalgia, and Life Review

Ave Maria Village and Heritage Centre residents and staff participated in all aspects of this activity. I encourage you to stop by Ave Maria and see the Tree of Life artwork that was created.

Activities like this occur all year long, if you are interested in learning more about the Art For Life program or helping out as a volunteer please contact Sally Jeppson, the Arts Center’s Art for Life Coordinator.
