Description: The public program will be an exhibit of the work of seniors who participated in the class. Works on paper will be sketches, drawings, and paper cut outs assembled in a final large group collage displayed in the main room of the Center. The works are the results of a program that combines art and movement, and which is designed to enhance seniors' understanding of physical movements by depicting the body's fluid movements in a two-dimensional expression. The artistic endeavor is designed to create a spiritual and mental bridge which will predispose retention of the body’s movement and, in doing so, create recognition of the movement when participating in the extension of their own bodies during the physical stretching activities created for this program.
