Olive Hyde Art Guild Sponsors Unique Art Classes
Reception: Sunday, September 11, 2016 at Mission Coffee (151 Washington Blvd.)

“I have fun painting with my friends, and it makes me happy” says Donald Dimenco, one of 23 students in this year’s Art Instruction classes for developmentally disabled adults at the Olive Hyde Art Center in Fremont. The program, now in its sixth year, was the brainchild of the Olive Hyde Art Guild and its desire to promote the visual arts to an underserved segment of the Fremont Community. Working with Fremont Recreation staff and Serra Center, a non-profit agency providing housing, services, and care for more than 90 developmentally disabled adults in the Fremont area, a pilot program was created in 2011. Classes have grown from 15 students then to 23 students this year. Many of the students have participated all six years.

Serra Center Class Participants 2016

To celebrate the students’ accomplishments and to view selected pieces of their artwork, Olive Hyde Art Guild, Serra Center, and City of Fremont invite the public to a free reception on Sunday afternoon, September 11, 2016, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m., at Mission Coffee at 151 Washington Blvd in Fremont. Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison will join in the celebration and present an Achievement Certificate to each student. Refreshments will be served and visitors will have an opportunity to vote on a Peoples’ Choice Award and to also purchase some of the students’ work. The artwork will be on display at Mission Coffee for the entire month of September.

This unique Art Instruction Program has been possible due to the collaborative efforts of the Olive Hyde Art Guild Board of Directors, City of Fremont Recreation Superintendent Irene Jordahl, Olive Hyde Gallery Curator Gloria Kim, Serra Center CEO Lisa Senadenos, and Olive Hyde Guild Members Judy Anglin and Gail Blalock. Funding by the Olive Hyde Art Guild covers the cost of all art supplies for each student, the use of the meeting room, the cost of the art instructor, and for the reception. Additional funding support over the years from the Alameda County ARTSFUND Grant Program and the Niles Rotary Foundation has helped keep the program viable.

In the words of students Lori Santos, “the art class makes me happy, calm and focused” and Marsha Smith, “painting is fun.” Be happy and have fun at Mission Coffee on September 11th meeting the artists, viewing their artwork, and enjoying some refreshments!
