Creative York’s Creative Aging Program brings experienced teaching artists into senior facilities to engage seniors in quality art classes and to connect older adults with their innate creative selves.
Studies show that seniors who participate in weekly art programs have fewer doctor visits and take less medication than those who do not. The Arts improve health, wellness, and encourage social connectivity.
Organizations are encouraged to schedule multiple classes so participants can experience the full benefits of working with the art materials, can develop a new skill, and cultivate self-confidence through the process.
