Town of Clay to host senior art class ‘Postcards from Paris’

— Art and cultural activities aren’t just fun and personally enriching. Studies show participation in the arts has health benefits and promotes the physical, mental and emotional well-being of older adults.

The town of Clay is hosting a four-week creative arts program that requires no experience, just a willingness to play. This French-themed creative journey will take participants on a different artistic adventure each week and will end with a lovely art show showcasing everyone’s works.

The class will take place from 10 a.m. to noon Thursdays, March 21, April 18, May 16 and June 6. During the last class, a guest artist will teach. Classes are held at the senior center on Route 31.

In addition, a take-home project will be able to keep participants busy throughout the month and add to the theme of the show.

The show will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at the Town of Clay Welcome Center. It will include (faux) wine, cheese and the arts. Tickets are $1.

All materials and a snack are provided each class. Classes are free, but participants are asked to commit to the group and help sell tickets for the show.

Registration is required; no drop-ins allowed. Call 652-3800 ext. 137 by March 18.
