Creative Aging

BAC's Arts in Education creative aging programs provide opportunities for seniors to actively express themselves creatively, socialize with their peers while learning new skills, engage in cultural performances, and master techniques in a variety of arts disciplines.

 

Arts learning and participation vitalize communities and the individuals within them. Arts residencies, workshops, and performances stimulate physical and mental well-being by presenting innovative and engaging opportunities for hands-on learning and exploration.
