Where do dance and visual art intersect?

AFTA Teaching Artists Nancy Havlik and Donna McKee explore this question in their program Moving Art.  Originally developed for active older adults with a grant from the Metlife Foundation, the series has been redesigned to suit the physical and cognitive changes those in our partnering centers are experiencing.  Participants explore the work of 20th century artists like Jackson Pollock and Paul Klee through movement and original art-making.

The new pilot premiered last winter at East County Community Center in Silver Spring, MD.

This summer, participants at The Kensington Club in Rockville, MD experimented in the program  with paint, charcoal and collage.  Most of all, they loved to dance; especially Bill, who found in Teaching Artist Nancy a nimble partner.

Where is Moving Art headed next?  You’ll find us at The Support Center in Rockville, MD, where we look forward to exploring the works of Spanish artists with the community’s Hispanic population.
