The Long X Arts Foundation and Good Shepherd home have received a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts (NDCA) to develop arts programming for area elders.
The NDCA’s nationally-recognized Art for Life Program brings together local arts agencies, elder care facilities, schools, and folk and contemporary artists to improve the health and wellness of elders through intensive art and artist interactions.
All community members are welcome and encouraged to take both classes alongside Horizon and Good Shepherd Home residents.
Classes begin Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the Good Shepherd Home Activities Room. The class is free and open to the public and supplies are included. Each class will feature a different lesson. Participants are encouraged to attend both classes.
Nicole Gagner will also bring lessons to students in the Intermediate and High School and her work will be on display at the Pioneer Museum/Long X Visitor’s Center from April 21-27.
The Long X Arts Foundation and Pioneer Museum of McKenzie County will host an artist reception on April 25 at 5:30pm at the Pioneer Museum. Refreshments will be served.
This program is made possible through a grant through the North Dakota Council on the Arts
