Associate Professor of Art David Harmon first became involved with the Sterling Presbyterian Manor, a retirement community in Sterling, Kan., through an art seminar he facilitated on Friday, Jan. 27. Harmon, a Sterling College faculty member, hosted the class to encourage residents who were 65 years old and up to enter the “Art is Ageless” Juried Art Show, which took place on Wednesday, March 14. Works submitted to the show are to be used in the local, state and national shows, as well as an “Art is Ageless” calendar.
Harmon spoke to the manor residents about quality and personal expression in their works. Color theory, craftsmanship and other art instruction were covered during the two-hour seminar.
“It was neat to work with the residents,” said Harmon. “There were lots of really, really good pieces submitted.”
