OK now we have a blog, where do I begin? Verve Vertu studio is located within Arts Youniverse http://www.artsyouniverse.com/, a community of artists, housed in a beautiful old church in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Gwen is the genius and the driving force behind all things Verve vertu. As arts coordinator she comes up with most of the ideas for projects and she teaches the artists new skills and, along with Tara, Kim and myself, assists them where needed. The artists themselves have a wide range of challenges including Downs syndrome, autism and cerebral palsy, and therefore have different levels of skills and abilities but they all have wonderful inate creative talents which are realised here in the studio. The artwork created in the studio is sold at shows and in a few select locations, all the procedes are paid to the artists after the studio is reimbursed for the cost of materials.
