A creative arts class for older adults that focuses on exploring a variety of art materials and creating a different art piece each class. The instructor will assist participants with guidance and exploration of the various art materials. This is not a formal art instruction class; each participant will have the opportunity to create and use the art materials in their own way. No prior art experience needed or required. Just a willingness to create, explore art materials, have fun, and socialize!
