What the heck is an Orange Dove?

The Orange Dove Project

An orange dove is a rare, mythical animal – it represents equality, peace, and bringing people together through art! 

On Saturday, June 8th from 1:00 – 4:00 PM, Local artist Mary Telfer will orchestrate this exciting, interactive art experience for all ages and abilities at the Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association (NISRA), 285 Memorial Drive, Crystal Lake.  Don’t miss your chance to participate in something rewarding and unusual.

This is an opportunity for you to have fun, create, and explore your relationship to nature and the animal world.  Telfer’s inspiration comes from her passion for working with people of all abilities.  The event will be staffed by volunteers from the local art community and will feature NISRA artists Coral Brady, and John Hudachek.  You’ll have the chance to move to the sounds of DJ Liz and enjoy refreshments from Panera bakery - and orange tootsie pops!
Coral will be teaching an acrylic workshop from 1:30 - 2:30.  John will be teaching a colored pencil workshop from 2:30 - 3:30.

The mission of Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association (NISRA) is enriching the lives of people with disabilities through meaningful recreation experiences.

The suggested donation is $5 per person or $10 per family. No art experience necessary.
