CareLink’s Building Community Through the Arts (BCTA), a program that provides hands-on art experiences for residents at the agency’s many sites, has concluded its 2019-2020 activities.
Throughout the year, 65 individuals from across CareLink took part in six art workshops at the Main Line Art Center, which provided opportunities to explore abstract art, clay handbuilding, still life drawing, winter landscape painting, printmaking, and abstract self-portraits. BCTA also funded the purchase of materials—paints, canvases, paper, crayons, colored pencils, and more—for artwork that was produced by independent CareLink artists outside of the workshops.
Though CareLink’s annual art show and sale was canceled this year due to COVID-19 exposure concerns, we look forward to welcoming guests at a public celebration of CareLink’s in 2021.
Building Community Through the Arts is supported by grants from The Wawa Foundation and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. The agency is grateful for the support, as well as the talents of all CareLink artists that make the BCTA program possible.
