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 http://www.covenantwoods.com/) 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! 

Programs are also available for the following artists:
Eugene Boudin (1824 – 1898)
Edgar Degas (1824 – 1917)
Claude Monet (1841-1919)
Grandma Moses (1860 – 1961)
