Paul Downie, executive director of the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, will speak at the Wednesday, May 25, meeting of The Gathering Place of the Swarthmore Senior Citizens Association at Swarthmore United Methodist Church.
An artist, musician, educator and arts administrator, Paul will give a brief overview of the Community Arts Center and its programs.
He will then give an informal talk about the way art intersects with various facets of our lives, using his personal experience and examples from the CAC as a lens for discussion.
The presentation is intended to be a conversation with participation from the group encouraged. If time allows, he will lead the group in a drawing exercise. (No experience or particular skills necessary!)
Bring a bag lunch at 12 noon; dessert and beverage are provided. Paul Downie’s arts conversation will begin at 12:30 p.m.
