Folk Arts for Homebound

Is it difficult or impossible to get out and take part in community art events due to your health?

If so, you may qualify for FREE Folk Art Instruction in your home!
Open to Homebound Residents of Atlantic, Cumberland, & Salem Counties.

The Folk Arts for Homebound program connects folk artists and homebound individuals through a series of free in-home performances, demonstrations, or instructional interactions.

These sessions are designed to broaden cultural opportunities for both artists and homebound participants who are unable to engage in community art events.

Collectively, these experiences strengthen communities and expand appreciation for the arts while highlighting the positive effects of arts and culture for individuals.

Through the Down Jersey Folklife Program at WheatonArts, learn the traditional art of Illuminated Calligraphy and Book Binding with Maureen Peters or create a South Jersey Story Quilt with Merry May.
