Art For Well Beings 2021

Art For Well Beings is a studio in Watsonville that provides a lively and original approach to painting for people with special needs. Based on the notion that all individuals have the potential to contribute through their art-making, founder/director/painter Judy Gittelsohn guides participants in playful yet rigorous art exercises. Through a foundation of positive routines, students paint together as they are exposed to art history, painting materials, and techniques in a safe and engaging environment. Each student is challenged to discover an individual approach. Every painting and painter is celebrated. A community is only as strong, vital and healthy as its least visible members. Art for Well Beings seeks to give voice and visibility to people living in the Monterey Bay with developmental or cognitive disabilities. Give a gift towards transformation, enriching lives, and creating a vital and generous community. Support the work of Art for Well Beings and Why Watsonville.
