Taft Center Students Display Artwork
Three of Chautauqua Adult Day Services, Taft Center participants attended art classes at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute over the spring and summer.
The classes were made possible through a grant from the Tri-County Arts Council furnished by the state Council on the Arts Decentralization Program.
The students worked with watercolors and were instructed by Robin Zifers Clark, a local artist. Their work was then displayed in a month-long exhibition at the institute.
Students included Janet Baker, Nancy Revell and Mason Bruton from the Taft Center.
