Join the Drawing Project for the celebratory exhibition of drawing from our summer workshops Crossing the Line: Drawing for Older Adults at CommonBond Riverview Senior Housing. The exhibition in the Emeritus Gallery at Minneapolis College of Art and Design runs from July 28-August 13. Opening Reception July 28, 6:00-8:00PM. Free and open to the public.
Over a ten-week period, The Drawing Project led residents of Common Bond’s Senior Housing Riverview in weekly drawing sessions. Each workshop was designed for participants to carefully develop new drawing skills, techniques and strategies. Most importantly, these workshops provided participants with new ways of seeing, looking and engaging with the world and their community. This exhibition celebrates the success of the participants as they tackled this new process and acknowledges drawing as an intimate practice achievable by all.
The Drawing Project, is an arts programming organization dedicated to connecting and growing community through the act of drawing, led the drawing workshop series in partnership with CommonBond Senior Housing, EngAGE, and the wonderful residents in the Riverside community.
