This show is not your usual collection of artists. These are artists who never expected to be artists. Many of these are people who felt they could never have the ability to create art.

This show is not your usual collection of artists. These are artists who never expected to be artists. Many of these are people who felt they could never have the ability to create art.

Some of these artists may be busy adults who figured they had no time to figure it all out. There are others who were told by some adult when they were young that their first attempts at art were not good so they simply labeled themselves not capable and abandoned art making. Some may have thought they were too old to learn even though Art is 4 Every1 has artists who are 100 years old. Others felt held back by severe physical or memory challenges and really could not even conceive of painting. Then there are child artists who have not had much exposure to art due to the cutbacks in school.

Art is 4 Every1’s founder Elaine Griffith has spent 25 years making it possible for these “unexpected artists” to discover the power of creating art. As each one discovers they can make a painting that looks like a photo of their choosing, their confidence soars and they go on to enjoy the emotional benefits and soul satisfying experience of being an artist in their own right.

Something very important happens to people who become labeled “artists”. The power art gives people to see new possibilities opens doors for painters of all ages and abilities. Sometimes it is just helping people see the world in a new way; seeing like an artist. And for others it is a very real and strong therapy that studies are now showing can affect their health in positive ways.

There will be a celebration of the work of Art is 4 Every1 students of many ages from all over Worcester county who are taught by Griffith and her Certified Instructors.
