Art Studio

Retirement is the perfect time to try something new!

Our Studio, located in Attic Angel Place, is staffed by an art program coordinator who leads classes and offers personal guidance for life enhancement, stress reduction, imagination and spirit. Using art therapy techniques tailored to each resident’s special needs and interests, the coordinator offers a mindful approach to benefit mind, body and spirit, both through group experiences and one-on-one collaborations.  

The Studio is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for residents in all levels of care. The art program coordinator also provides a weekly Art Cart program within The Haven living quarters as well. Our art program includes looms, yarn, needles, paint, clay, glass, art history and many more art-related activities.

Some of the creative classes held in the Studio Monday through Thursday include:

  • Knit and Stitch
  • Beaded Jewelry
  • Fused Glass
  • Ceramics
  • Painting
  • Drawing
  • Card-Making
  • Seasonal Projects

In addition, the Studio sponsors guest artist presentations, art-related outings and gallery openings for resident artwork.

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
