Art in the Making, Art Classes for Adults Age 55 and Better

Art in the Making offers opportunities for adults age 55 and better to participate in art classes taught by professional artist teachers. These classes are held for two hours, once a week for eight week sessions, and are offered in a variety of art mediums. You may qualify for reduced tuition if you have a limited budget. 

Art in the Making classes are for those who have no experience in the arts, as well as adults who have past experience but would enjoy enhancing their skills or learning a new medium. Classes are offered in Space One Eleven’s studios and culminate with public art exhibitions.

Aroha Philanthropies

Aroha Philanthropies launched “Seeding Vitality Arts” (formerly “Seeding Artful Aging”) in Spring 2016.

As a subset of the broader field of creative aging, vitality arts programs inspire and enable older adults to learn, make and share the arts in ways that are novel, complex and socially engaging. Successful vitality arts programs are led by teaching artists whose creative process and understanding of older adults bring joy, connection, improved health and well-being, and a renewed sense of purpose to older adults in community and residential settings.

 

This project is made possible in part, through support from Aroha Philanthropies
