"Recent research shows that new brain cells keep developing throughout our lifespan if we stretch ourselves by getting involved in activities new to us, such as exploring new creative and artistic skills. In response, a citywide program of workshops and classes was launched...to inspire and encourage adults 50 years old and better to get involved in the arts."
The Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission 's "Creativity Matters - There's an Art to Getting Older" Program includes a series of free senior art workshops and classes taught by professional teaching artists.
Senior arts classes are four to six weeks in length with offerings ranging from poetry, creative writing and two-dimensional and three-dimensional visual arts, to various forms of dance, acting and senior theater.
The senior arts program also includes ten free performances of "The Creative Aging Revue," an entertaining, interactive 45-minute program that brings the new research about aging and the arts to life.
The program aims o keep seniors' minds active by learning new activities and skills allowing for creativity.
