Art Discovery for Seniors

I enjoy helping seniors discover their personal forms of creative expression in the visual arts. Over the years I have learned that the desire to explore and express our natural ability to create becomes more important the older we get.

Seniors benefit from art activities in many ways. They look forward to the socialization and getting in touch with their inner artist.  They relax while keeping their minds active, and they’re amazed and proud about what they have accomplished. Most important, they have FUN!

I am experienced and skilled in conducting art discovery classes in various settings throughout Central Florida including community and activity centers including:

  • Senior Centers
  • Assisted Living Centers
  • Nursing Homes
  • Retirement Communities
  • Senior Day Care Centers
