New Hampshire’s Weekly: Summer 2011 Self-Expression

This summer about 45 young women from Rockingham and Stafford counties will be empowered by the arts. This has been the mission of Arts in Reach (AIR) for 15 years and it is impacting the lives of those who participate.

The organization began when two young women, just out of the University of New Hampshire, wanted to share with others their love of art, according to Leanne Stella, executive director of AIR. Kristin Forselius and Amanda Tappan loved being exposed to art in college but felt they hadn’t properly had arts training before that.
