Specially created for adults age 55+, creative aging programs honor older adults as creative and social learners. Skills-based arts learning, in a socially supportive environment, yields multiple benefits for older learners—not the least of which is its intrinsic value in reducing social isolation. There is great potential in older adulthood, as it is a time to grow, reflect, and make meaning. Let's celebrate this wonderful, dynamic, creative stage of life! A different visual arts technique or medium will be explored during each Creative Aging Workshop session. Sometimes we will learn about artists or art movements as well.
Supplies: All supplies will be provided by the library, no need to bring your own. Also, creating art can be messy, so please keep that in mind when choosing the clothing you will wear to the program.
