Independent Living Facilities

Creative Aging Arts's mission is to encourage older adults to discover or rediscover their creative capacities while acquiring new skills. Our art curriculum includes painting, printmaking, collage, and mixed media. All of the art projects are 'open ended' in that the participant determines what their artwork will look upon completion. Research has proven that participation in activities that foster creative engagement and skills mastery in a social environment has positive psychological, physical, and emotional health benefits for older adults.

For people in an Independent Living Community, the workshops run about an hour and a half. The workshops are usually facilitated in an activity room or in a common area.
