Art Self Expression

Community Engagement Grant

Homeward Bound once again received funding through a Target grant to hold art sessions! This new program is ‘Self-Expression through Art’. A wonderful art instructor, Candice Simpson, will be coming to the Brooklyn Park location for six Monday evening sessions.

The first session was December 23 with classes following on February 3, February 17, March 2, March 16  and ending on March 30; schedule pending any inclement weather. The art sessions will focus on including tactile materials. The first session incorporated tissue paper and stencils to assist in creative art making. The art work created thus far by the talented individuals we serve has been amazing! We anxiously await the dozens more masterpieces that are awaiting an outlet.

The grant received from Target was a Community Engagement grant, which means that a large piece of the funding is how the art is shared with the community. This a wonderful opportunity for Homeward Bound individuals to showcase their talents! More information to come later in the year on when and where art may be displayed.
