Please join CARE in welcoming Paige LaDue Henry as our new art instructor. She comes to us with a lifetime of experience as a local artist. She is currently the instructor at the Paramount Art Sparks Program in St. Cloud, a program designed for people challenged with memory loss and their caregivers.
Art bubbles out of Paige, who began crafting and experimenting at age 16 when she entered
her first art show. After exploring many mediums, she settled for a time on paintings in oil, and
then expanded to acrylic and acrylic mixed media.
Finding inspiration in the world around her, Paige creates art using combinations of colors, textures, and patterns, a variety of textiles, and a wide range of surfaces.
A lover of art history, she strives to understand how artists of the past were influenced by the times in which they lived, “We artists can go forward on our inventive sojourns because of the efforts of the amazing artists that have come before is,” Paige said. She hopes when folks view her art, it makes them feel something, maybe even joy, and she hopes they can see how much fun she had during her creative process. Her pieces are many-layered, and are not completed in one painting session; they evolve – and sometimes even surprise her.
Paige is thrilled to bring her artistic knowledge to the area she calls home and expressed her appreciation for the opportunity to spread her artistic joy to our community art class.
CARE is fortunate to receive funding from the Department of Human Services to provide these senior art classes. Our goal is to encourage creative expression through art in its many forms while reducing isolation in our rural community.
