Keeping Outreach Within Reach of the Community

Arts & Culture

With a legacy that dates back to 1897 nationally and to 1957 locally, the National League of American Pen Women, Sarasota Branch has always honored its outreach mission to keep the arts alive by holding workshops and presentations for the public as well as providing high school seniors from Sarasota and Manatee Counties who are talented in visual arts, writing, and music with monetary awards. 

To make outreach within reach, they revamped their website. Weekly, an artist, writer, or music member provides a blog for the community with advice on overcoming page fright; or a lesson on how to get inside your artist head and start painting; or information on Ikebana, the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging; or an exercise to dispatch loneliness through writing.

They call the blog “Read It and Reap” in hopes that it will do exactly that in just a minute or two. Upcoming blogs will include audio and visual as well.
