Art & Writing Program

 


"Every human is an artist.
And this is the main art that we have:
the creation of our story."
Don Miguel Ruiz

Organize your residents to participate in the 2019 LeadingAge Ohio annual Art & Writing Program! Five District Shows will be held across the state this Spring, with all winning entries progressing to the State Show during the LeadingAge Ohio Annual Conference, August 27 - 29, 2019 in Columbus.
