DOROT Legacy Artwork
“Ada and Francesca are warm and gifted instructors. They were patient and supportive of everyone’s work and process. Everyone enjoyed their sessions, finding the projects engaging, challenging, exciting and more. The work was really beautiful, too – see photos attached. Thank you so much again for your help in arranging The Art Studio NY program at DOROT.” – Wendy Handler, LMSW – Director, Lasting Impressions: DOROT’s Legacy Project
For the past 8 weeks, we have been teaching an art class to 20+ senior citizens at Dorot for what is called their “Legacy Project”. Each person created artwork that is deeply personal to them, while learning new creative techniques and modes of authentic self-expression in every class. The course culminated in a final project where participants created artwork that reflects what legacy they want to leave in the world. Some pieces included photos of family, grandchildren, and meaningful chapters of their own lives while others created self-portraits reflecting their own unique spirit.
