Greetings! I was lead to start an art therapy program for seniors living in assisted living facilities and having physical or memory challenges.
Without having a background in teaching art, I was led to develop a unique program, using acrylics for our senior art students, that gives each of them to complete a wonderful composition in a one hour session.
We launched Ageless Art three years ago, with our first student challenged wih neorological challenges affecting some of her motor skills but not her mind. We had great success with our first student Jerri and now have expanded Ageless Art to reach 200 senior artists each month and now serve senior centers and include all interested seniors 50+.
