Spring is in the Air – and in the Art

Visual artists and teachers Flo Wolin and Mary Curro have decades of experience in the arts between them.   Flo has presented more than fifty visual arts programs through Tidewater Arts Outreach since 2011.  In 2015, she started going to Sentara PACE Churchland regularly.  Her good friend, Mary Curro, was soon involved, helping Flo every step of the way.

Here is Flo’s March visual arts program recap: 

Mary Curro and I had a great time today at Sentara PACE!  As some  of our 12 artists agreed, the time goes by so fast when you are having Fun!

 I brought in flowers and buds from my yard, as well as an Easter Basket. Mary Curry brought inSt. Patrick’s Day inspirations!  We had many returning artists, and one new man who speaks no English.  Some artists created cards, others did paintings, all in the realm of March and Springtime. Naomi worked with us, which is a big help. 

 Mr. Bucher continued to work on his Ski picture, almost finished now “Close,” he said. 

The arts connect people across generations, cultures and much more.  They give us a chance to experiment, play, make our mark, have a purpose, leave a legacy and get lost in a creative space.  Uplifting arts programs are adaptable for every age and ability.  They help us celebrate life.  For these artists, art is the perfect way to share their creativity and compassion.
