ARTS ON THE MOVE
DCS and MVCA to combine forces…

We are so excited to announce that we are entering into a collaborative pilot agreement to bring MVCA classes to the Dolgeville Central School campus. This expanded educational opportunity will be open to students, families, and members of the greater Dolgeville area, and will augment the existing DCS arts offerings.

A Shared Vision…
DCS has always had a rich history of supporting the
arts. At their core, both organizations believe that
involvement in the arts is associated with gains
in academics, cognitive ability, critical thinking,
confidence, and concentration. A strong arts
program can connect people more deeply and
open them to new ways of seeing their world.

Beginning in September, 2016, DCS will host some of our Fine Arts, Arts for Health, Music, and other applicable classes and workshops for small tuition charges. DCS faculty and/or MVCA certified instructors will continue to present the high quality training that the public has come to expect from DCS and MVCA.

This is an exciting time for us. If this pilot program is successful, MVCA will be able to expand its programming and community presence to other interested school districts. Students and residents will be able to enjoy affordable, highquality arts instruction in the safe, comfortable environment of their local school, with minimal transportation costs or risks. We truly will be fulfilling our mission of “facilitating and promoting the arts for residents of the Mohawk Valley.”

ALPINE CENTER - “ARTS FOR HEALTH” PROGRAM

Alpine Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts and the Dale Memorial Trust have been working to create art and health classes for residents of the Little Falls facility.

The Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts found artists, musicians and a certified Tai Chi instructor to teach classes to the residents of the skilled nursing facility. The Dale Memorial Trust generously helped finance a portion of the program.

Since the program’s implementation, test scores indicate that residents have demonstrated a 50% improvement in depression and mood markers. The number of people attending classes has also increased.

A 2016 Calendar to celebrate the artists has been created by Alpine. All proceeds are given to MVCA.

SUPPORT OUR SENIOR ARTISTS.

THANK YOU ALPINE REHABILITATION AND
NURSING CENTER!
