cortes and hay2

The Hunterdon Art Museum is offering 10 full scholarships to its fall Artistic Expressions class for adults with developmental disabilities.

Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. To qualify, just visit the Hunterdon Art Museum’s website at http://hunterdonartmuseum.org/education-programs/special-needs-students/ and complete the application, or call HAM Education Coordinator April Anderson at 908-735-8415. Deadline to apply is August 30.

Two Artistic Expressions classes will run for 10 weeks during the fall: a Tuesday class beginning Sept. 13 or a Thursday class that starts Sept. 15. Both begin at 6:30 p.m., and run for consecutive weeks (except for Tuesday, Oct. 11). Scholarships are available for either class.

Artist Jim Pruznick leads this open studio class for adults and teens with developmental disabilities, in which art-making topics are tailored to new and returning students, and include drawing, painting, sculpting, mixed media, woodworking, photography and fiber arts. An open studio class gives students the opportunity to experiment with a variety of materials and mediums and to create art at their own pace and skill level. Two instructors and a maximum class size of 10 students means each student receives individualized attention while working in a fun and supportive environment.

“Artistic Expressions is a class with creative, therapeutic and social objectives,” noted Jennifer Brazel, education director at the Hunterdon Art Museum. “And it’s the perfect way to build skills, dexterity and self-esteem.”

The scholarships were established through donations received by the Museum. If you’d like to make a contribution toward this scholarship program, please contact Donna Huron, HAM’s Individual Giving Officer, at donna@hunterdonartmuseum.org.

Artistic Expressions is made possible in part by a grant from Investors Foundation.
