Threads, Weaving Words and Art will be a collection of work being created at Arts Escape. The goal of this project is to formalize what our participants have experienced and created through our programming. The publication will reflect the positive and creative work of our students using the arts as a tool to stay active and engaged. Threads will be a book to share with others how the arts can bring joy and growth at any age. 2019 will be the second addition of our publication.

Threads will be a year-long project with workshops and classes designed by our instructors to correlate with the project. The publication will include written work as well as artwork. We have professional instructors in both art and writing that will guide our students through their self-reflective journey creating a final published book of their collective pieces of work.

“Arts Escape – where creativity and
learning never get old!


Susan Smith
"I discovered Arts Escape by attending a Gershwin concert and got hooked, then started with the beginner drawing classes. The instructors gave me my confidence. Arts Escape is half my social life for the week. I like being with people with like minds. I enjoy the variety of classes – there is a diverse menu of choices. The teachers don’t let you become self-critical – they constantly bring out your potential."
