Visit with Grandma Moses

This week Cathy presented Visit with Grandma Moses at Covenant Woods in Mechanicsville, Virginia.  This is a retirement community with multiple levels of care.  (for more information on Covenant Woods, see Most of the students this week were from assisted care. 

As with the other 10 ‘Visit’ classes in this art appreciation series, Cathy first gave a brief lecture on the artist, followed by a slide show of their work, and then a hands-on art activity in artist’s style.  The object of the hour and a half session is to gain some familiarity with the artist, and have a good time!
