Workers at Developmental Disability Workshop learn about creating art

A group of 20 budding artists had an opportunity during the week of Jan. 11 to find out more about creating art and utilizing the artwork to benefit the Developmental Disability Workshop in Clermont County.

Leaders of the workshop invited Patty Mitchell, of Athens, a field representative of the Ohio Arts Council, to bring her experience as an art instructor to the workshop.

“I came here this week to help the sheltered workshop leaders develop an art program and to look at what they can do with that program,” said Mitchell. “The adults in the workshop have been having fun and they like this program a lot.”
