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. Creative York has redesigned this exciting program to work for participants virtually, ensuring our community’s elders stay connected to vital programming while also staying safe during the current health crisis.
Virtual Beginner Painting Class
This virtual program aims to engage a group of seniors in fun and inspiring weekly art classes. It provides the participants with quality art supplies, tools to complete the projects, access to borrowed technology, and scheduled time with a professional teaching artist. The teaching artist will lead each class in fun and engaging projects that are designed to be welcoming to beginner artists, and yet provide the group with real skill-building opportunities.
