Tie-dye time

An unseasonably warm winter day offers opportunities.

Especially to artists.

That's why art instructor Anisha Sanghani took the associates from InRETURN outside March 11 to create some wearable art.

Specifically, they created one-of-a-kind t-shirts using the time-honored method of tie-dye.

The Fitton Center has a long-standing partnership with InRETURN, the Blue Ash non-profit dedicated to helping people with traumatic brain injuries and neurological disorders.

Much of their work involves teaching job skills and finding associates manufacturing positions in the program, but InRETURN also offers its associates life skills, including weekly art classes on Monday afternoon.

According to the InRETURN website, art serves a vital role in achieving the mission, helping “encourage the use of fine motor skills and concentration. It is also a creative release for all associates, especially if they experience difficulty expressing themselves verbally.”

Sanghani said the aspirational element of art is as important as the functional.

“I feel the most satisfying thing to see is to see the students believe in themselves once they realize that they can create something they never dreamed of before,” she said.
