Art Program & Artist-in-Residence
Under the direction of Betty Rothaus, MFA, the “Discover the Artist Within” Program provides classroom, individual and bedside opportunities for budding resident artists to explore a variety of artistic expressions. Our award-winning program has been heralded as one of the most outstanding Art Programs in the country.
Many residents who come to the art program have never picked up a brush or tried charcoal and chalk drawing. With Betty’s tutelage, many residents go on to have their works displayed on the walls of The Reutlinger, in the local community and,for example, the De Young Museum in San Francisco through the Elder Arts Program.
The joy of creation and the receipt of applause has given many of our residents the boost they needed to make the days at The Reutlinger purposeful and highly rewarding.
