ARTS PROGRAMS FOR THE AGING COMMUNITY

Research shows that professionally conducted arts and cultural programs have a positive impact on older adults and the elderly. Sustained hands-on engagement in the arts conducted by a trained Arts Horizons professional teaching artist reduces boredom, depression and anxiety, while improving cognition, self-esteem, independence and self-expression.  Our workshops are conducted at senior centers, independent and assisted living facilities and nursing homes and are designed to meet the unique needsof your population, including elders with memory loss.  Take a look at our Collaborative Storyteling Workshop in Newark!
