Art and Storytelling
We are excited to begin teaching Art and Storytelling at the Emeryville Senior Center. The classes will run from July 8 through November 17, are open to everyone, and free for members of the Emeryville Senior Center. The Senior Center offers a variety of services and activities for older adults age 50 and over. Membership is just $30.00 a year and includes all classes and events. You do not have to be an Emeryville resident to join the Center or attend our classes. We would like to thank the City of Emeryville who awarded ABB a grant to start this Art Program at the Emeryville Senior Center.

Using “The Garden” as our inspiration, the class will explore that theme for students to tell a personal or imagined story as they are introduced to a variety of techniques, including drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, bookmaking, and textiles. Each class will start with a lecture and a technique demonstration. We will then break for lunch and return to the classroom to work on individual and collaborative artworks.
Over the course, we will have several guest artists talk about their work and present new materials and techniques. Our first guest, Emeryville artist, Vickie Jo Sowell, will introduce class members to a garden site, Big Daddy’s Community Garden, which she founded and is located on Peralta Street. Further visits to the garden may occur both during and outside class hours.
