Art Coordinating Committee
The Art Coordinating Committee (ACC) invites residents to drop by and observe artists at work, or join them in one of our studios.

In the Art Studio, we work in all mediums: painting, drawing, pastels, watercolor, acrylic & oil. It is a mecca for experienced and beginning artists. The best works of everyone who uses the studio are displayed in the Student/Teacher Exhibit in our own Gallery Q2 every summer.
Our Craft Studio features fabric arts, silver jewelry, clay & ceramics. This is a well-lit and extensively equipped workspace, including a kiln. Whether you are an artist or novice, this studio is a place to find creativity, relaxation and your hidden talents. Nestled in a corner of the Craft Studio is a comfortable alcove for carrying out projects involving all kinds of fabric arts.
Outside experts are sometimes brought in to teach a Specialized Workshop in media such as pastel, still life and figure drawing. We encourage residents to arrange workshops in their own area of interest and many do.
Art Shows featuring photography, sculpture, painting, wall hangings, and pottery are installed for two or three months on a rotating basis. Recent shows are: “Cities/Urban Spaces”, “It’s All Relatives”, and “Staff Talent Revealed.”
Our Knitters enjoy knitting for hospital patients, Afghans for cancer patients and sweaters, scarves and other things for themselves or as presents.
Rhoda Cohen is the Chair.
