ABOUT THE SHOW:
Hattie Larlham Creative Arts – Standing Rock Exhibit

Presently, the canvas painting is the beginning of the Creative Arts program and as you will see at the Exhibit at Standing Rock, the self-expression is really coming through for all of our artists! Our professional ART staff are experimenting with new tools and techniques each day to expose more and more of our individuals to this unique outlet for creativity. In 2008, Hattie Larlham will explore other artistic disciplines: music, digital art, digital photography and video, pottery and weaving.
The paintings that you see are for sale at Standing Rock and later, at the Hattie Café’ Fountain and Gifts, located in Hudson. We are proud to announce that 100% of the proceeds of the sale of each painting goes directly to the individual artist. Hattie Larlham does not require any compensation for their role in this process. Our mission is strictly to allow all people with disabilities to express themselves in any way they can. Expose and Explore is our mantra. We welcome you to come by and visit us in our studio and watch the creativity yourself!
