Art Exhibit Held On Boardwalk
The boardwalk in Rockaway Beach, which had been evacuated only days earlier due to Hurricane Irene, was the ideal backdrop to showcase the beautiful masterpieces.
The colorful creations ranged from landscapes and seascapes to the abstract and impressionist movements. Under the tutelage of an art therapist, residents have been taught traditional techniques and encouraged to reminisce and explore in hopes of tapping into their inner artist.
Many residents have stated that they find the painting classes, which are usually accompanied by music while overlooking the ocean, extremely relaxing.
