Inglis Artists Find Inspiration
Disability in the News
Wonderful article from the West Chester “Daily Local News.” Inglis residents who participate in art programming here, gain inspiration from seeing work by Inglis Artist in Residence, Rhoda Kahler. Inglis has for many years offered art programming. As residents’ skill and interest levels increased and outgrew traditional art therapy programs, Inglis staff created the Artist in Residence (AIR) program to meet these needs for more sophisticated art programming. Along with building residents’ technical abilities, the program, funded by a grant from the Dolfinger-McMahon Foundation, has also significantly enhanced the emotional and cognitive health of participants and as the program’s profile rises, it is increasingly touching the lives of all members of the Inglis Community.
