"BURBANK SENIOR ARTS COLONY" PROGRAM
Los Angeles area.
Burbank, California, USA.
"The colony was founded on several premises: Creative people enjoy being around like-minded people; not everyone wants to retire to a house on a golf course. The final premise - that health is connected to intellectual stimulation - is key. Aging studies indicate that seniors who participate in arts programs are in better health, less prone to depression, and take less medication."
The purpose of the “Burbank Senior Artists Colony” Program is for seniors to be given the opportunity of living in apartment housing within an artistic community, and the tools to engage in senior theater, senior art, exploration and education.
The “Burbank Senior Artists Colony” Program is a senior living community surrounded by an art inspired environment with access to live entertainment in the performance art theater, and creating art in on-site art studios. Lifelong Learning programs include writing classes such as Poetry In Motion, Computer Class and Anti-Aging exercise classes.
Senior learning and educational classes take place on the Burbank Senior Arts Colony campus through the “EngAGE” Program. The “EngAGE Senior Learning” Program takes a person-centered and whole-person approach to creative and healthy aging by teaching senior arts along with wellness, lifelong learning, community building and intergenerational programs. Senior art classes are taught by college-level professionals. Senior art classes available include writing, acting, performance arts, visual arts, digital and more.
