Join the Center of Independent Living every week as they exercise creativity in the Friday Art Group. Art sessions begin at 1 pm and generally end at 3 pm. Participants choose which project to do each week. Past projects have included trinket boxes, mosaics, decorating ceramic plates before firing, and jewelry. Bring your creativity, music to share and, if you like, a snack. Projects generally take between two and four weeks to complete. The program is free, but please call if you plan on coming so there will be more supplies on hand. The art comes to life at the Ann Arbor CIL, 3941 Research Park Drive, Ann Arbor. For more information, contact Sue Probert at (734) 971-0277 x34 orsuep@aacil.org. The group now meets in the Gathering Place or kitchen in the CIL.
