Art and Writing Workshop for Caregivers and Care-Recipients

We’re happy to share information about an art and writing workshop for caregivers and care-recipients in the Austin area.

“Offered by Badgerdog and MobileArt and funded by St. David’s Foundation’s Health’s Angels, this art and writing workshop brings caregivers and care-recipients together for six weeks beginning August 11. Caregivers, with the help of Badgerdog teaching artists, explore family memories and the experience of caregiving through a variety of writing styles. At the same time, care-recipients create visual artwork—including sculpture, painting, and drawing—with assistance from MobileArt program volunteers. The work created during the workshops, both written and visual, will be published and displayed at a celebratory event on November 19. This workshop is free and meets Sundays from 1:00-2:30 at the AGE of Central Texas (3710 Cedar Street in Hyde Park). Workshop dates are: August 11, 18, 25 & September 8, 15, 22. To register, email Cecily Sailer at csailer@austinlibrary.org or call 512.542.0076. “
