The Mobile Art Program works with the residents at the nursing home my mother lives in. She has really enjoyed working with the instructors ad has made new friends at the home.
I have attended two of the exhibits featuring works by the Mobile Art Program. It is great to see the variety of images created by the participants. They express their personalities in the bright,colorful paintings. You can tell that they enjoy painting!
As a professor, I have had students who interned with the Mobile Arts Program. All had a terrific experience! Theresa has created a program that not only brings purpose and joy to older participants but also gives volunteers a chance to experience a truly inspirational organization.
seen it grow since she began work part time with my office so she could focus on her non profit full time!
I have personally seen the pride and enthusiam the elders with whom Theresa works with show. They are so proud of the artwork they produce. The art related field trips that Theresa takes the elders on to are invaluable to opening their world to new experiences. Theresa is a godsend to many who have little contact with anyone else in their lives. She is a huge ray of sunshine for this population and all who know her. With her patient guidance, Theresa shows people that you can can produce a piece of artwork and have skills that they did not know they possessed.
