Youth, elders share art at Care Center East

For the fifth consecutive year, Parkrose High School art students will be showing their work at Gateway’s Care Center East, an adult rehabilitative care center. This year’s exhibit includes drawings, paintings and designs in a variety of mediums; chalk pastels, charcoal, pen and ink, pencil and collage. The students showing their art are from three different art classes; Drawing and Painting, Basic Design, and Design 2. Teachers working with the students are May Wallace, Kira Fogarty and Bev Cordova.

Parkrose High School art teachers and students began working with the nursing home five years ago when Care Center East activity director Jan Jones contacted Cordova about showing students artwork during an open house at the care center. Cordova presented the idea to her students and they eagerly agreed it was a great opportunity to showcase their work. That first year, Care Center East residents and their families warmly welcomed the art display and just like that, a lasting connection to the community was born. This has been especially fun and rewarding for beginning and intermediate art students who are often showing for the first time says Cordova. The students are excited to be recognized by adults in the community and the ribbons awarded by Care Center East residents mean a great deal to the fledgling artists. Cordova says her goal is to eventually have a meeting of Care Center East residents and art students to talk about art and the community. The public is welcome to view the artwork. Care Center East is located at 11325 N.E. Weidler St. For more information about the exhibit contact Activities Director Jan Jones at 503-253-1871.
