Started in 2009, Art with Seniors classes were created to tap the potential of older adults and provide a creative outlet for personal expression. Courses typically last six to ten weeks and enable older adults to learn a variety of art methods.
All courses are taught by local artists, and are typically hosted in assisted living communities, senior centers, community centers and art museums. Classes can also be opened up to family and friends of our senior students.
We provide classes in numerous mediums:
- Drawing, Watercolor, Sculpture, Creative Writing, Jewelry Making
- Collage, Acrylic Painting, Arts and Crafts, and Picture Album Development
Post-completion, senior artists own their artwork. Many choose to wear, gift, or sell their work at community fairs and other outlets such as Etsy.
- Improved quality of life, including the distraction from physical pain, stimulation of cognitive faculties and an outlet for personal expression
- Improved connections with family and friends that can last beyond the classroom setting
We would be happy to provide our art courses for seniors in your community. Please contact us if you have a need for our program.
