Springbrook Students Display Artwork at Hartwick Today

April 30, 2010

Throughout the day on Friday, April 30, Hartwick College will host students from Springbrook, and their art, in the Forman Gallery of Anderson Center for the Arts on the College campus.

Springbrook students will participate in several workshops with members of the Hartwick community during the day, including subjects such as glass blowing, papermaking and ceramics.

Springbrook is a not-for-profit, state-licensed organization serving more than 550 people with developmental disabilities from across New York State and beyond. Its programs are designed to teach the skills needed to maximize potential, but also to put those experiences in a context. Springbrook works at school, in communities and in the home to create a comprehensive learning experience that makes every day a chance to discover, build and grow.

The event has been coordinated by Danielle Everetts '11 and Harriet Bondarchuk '11, with Art Therapist Heather Chauncey, and the support of Hartwick College faculty, Springbrook staff, and volunteers.
