SEQUENCING ART CLASSES

SEQUENCING ART CLASSES
Students Jason Stover & Bram VanderTuin

Thanks to a partnership with River Gallery School in Brattleboro, VT, thirteen Grace Cottage employees have recently taken Sequencing Art Classes. The oil painting technique was developed by artist and River Gallery School founder Ric Campman after his first stem cell transplant to help treat multiple myeloma (he died in 2006) and is designed to reduce stress and to assist with grieving. The only tools required are fingers, paint, disposable gloves, sticks, and paper.

The finished work of several Grace Cottage employees is mounted in the hospital hallways, and co-workers are amazed at their similarity to artists such as Monet or van Gogh (seriously!). More workshops will be held in the future as funds are raised for this specific purpose; for more information, call (802) 365-9109.
