Art for the Journey provides a weekly Recreational Art Class to Students at Carmel School in Ruther Glen. The program is held every week on Tuesday. The volunteer art teachers arrive at 8:45AM and work with two groups until about 1:30PM. This program will be on hiatus for summer in line with the school calendar.
Students work with Oil Paints and find creative expression is relaxing and meaningful. The sense of well being, autonomy, and self confidence through accomplishment is evident. One of the students has plans to enter her painting in the county library exhibit, and has expressed amazement in her ability, and delight in the completed works.
