The Cultural Arts Program offers residents a chance to
develop their artistic capabilities in a supportive
In the arts and crafts workshop, residents are taught various
artistic methods and are encouraged to utilize art as a means
of creative expression. With the helpful guidance of the
recreation staff, residents are challenged to use materials
such as acrylic, paint, charcoal, graphite, chalk, and clay.
To serve as motivation for exemplary effort, the staff select
one piece of artwork each month to display and the resident
who created the piece is recognized.
Some of the other activities offered in the workshop include model car building, ceramics
painting, participation in a chalk walk, and designing soapbox derby cars which are eventually
raced. Residents are also taken to museums throughout Los Angeles and exposed to many
different types of art.
