Learn from the comfort of your home through interactive online classes.

A free program that engages caregivers, care recipients, and older adults working with professional artists to discover new, creative ideas and ways of thinking. Arts for Life is going online! Participants are required to have a computer with a camera and internet access. 

No experience needed

All skill levels are welcome.

Research has shown that arts learning stimulates cognitive capacities in the brain. As humans age, they require a significant level of cognitive stimulation which enables them to engage their critical and creative thinking skills. Feelings of social isolation and loneliness have shown to diminish while emotional health strengthened after older adults participate in arts learning activities. No prior experience in the arts is needed in order to participate. Our artists/educators are experts in developing the talents of all ages and abilities. It is the intention of Arts for Life to increase the quality of life for senior citizens in northeastern Pennsylvania.
