ART WITH ELDERS
San Francisco, CA, USA.
“Exhibits showcase senior artists to the larger community, challenging stereotypes about aging. Artwork is displayed in venues across the Bay Area and presented in our online gallery throughout the year.”
“Exhibits engage artists and audiences through the power of creativity, deepening connection between cultures and generations.”
“Classes and workshops, on-site and online, are the heart of what we do. They bring people with shared interests together, building real and meaningful community, and giving participants opportunities to continue to grow cognitively and exercise creativity.”
Art With Elders partners with senior living, long-term care facilities, senior centers, and seniors living independently.
Art With Elders allows older adults to engage in enrichment classes, self-expression and provides a valuable social connection to their community.
Classes are taught in person and online by professional artists.
Older adults create art, learn about technique, art history, and engage in discussions. The program is tailored to be suitable for all skill levels.
Senior art enrichment classes are offered in English, Russian, Spanish, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
In addition to art classes the program holds an annual exhibit and a travelling art exhibit.
