Creative Action supports lifelong learning and creativity through arts-based classes for adults ages 65+, which growing research shows promotes social, physical, and cognitive health among older adults. Participants engage in creative writing, storytelling, visual art, creative movement, and community-building activities, culminating in a final sharing for friends and family at the end of each session.
Continuing Creativity members are encouraged to learn a new skill or explore an artistic field they’ve always wanted to try. Memories and lived experience are unlocked and honored through the creative process.
The safety of our class members is of utmost importance to us. During this unprecedented time, we are delivering art projects and experiences free of charge to interested individuals age 65 and better.
These projects are provided free of charge. To register, contact Christie Jean-Jacques at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 512-442-8773 x123.
