Wallingford Public Library and the Wallingford Senior Center, in conjunction with Arts for Learning Connecticut, will offer an 8-week workshop in which participants will create a personalized mixed media memoir using simple but powerful writing and visual art techniques. Participants will spend 7 joyful weeks exploring and creating, and then will celebrate at the 8th session when their memoir book and DVD are revealed! No specific skills are required! Even people who do not consider themselves creative will have fun with this process. This program is funded by a gift in memory of Elsie and Irving Peretzman.
This program is intended for Wallingford residents, age 60 and over. Workshops will be held Wednesdays, 3:00-4:30 p.m., beginning April 26. Sessions will be held both in the Library and the Senior Center. Space is limited. Advanced registration is required.
