Better Block on Pine Project
Art Class Hosted by The Collective Palette Studio Instructor Rick Cesta
The Collective Palette Studio held an art class at the Trumbull County Board of DD office. Seven individuals with disabilities and 11 community members participated in an art class taught by instructor Rick Cesta. By following step-by-step instructions, everyone created their own unique and one-of-a-kind beach scene.
Artists from The Collective Palette Studio are also participating in a grant proposal to the Ohio Arts Council. It is a “match grant” where the Studio matches funds up to the maximum of $1,500, which gives the artists a total of $3,000 to take classes in new art forms and techniques, have basic business planning sessions and assist with supply costs, all while helping fulfill dreams.
