Giving Back

MAN President, Darlene Kraft recently initiated a new program for the artistic enrichment of developmentally disabled adults.

Two watercolor painting classes are scheduled ongoing Thursdays. With the assistance of their Director, Christina Navratil, caregivers from the Mountain of Promise, transport students by vans to our Community Arts Center (CAC). In this well-equipped classroom, the students are guided in their creation of a new watercolor painting each week.

With more than 40 of these disadvantaged adults, dedicated caregivers assist Ms. Kraft with the student's art activities. In addition, one or two Gallery members volunteer weekly to help with each class. Mountain Arts Network is blessed to have this wonderful opportunity to give back to our community.
