Therapeutic arts

therapeutic-artsEngagement in activities that tap into creative potential including storytelling, writing, painting, music, intergenerational projects or theatre improves physical and emotional health, increases feelings of confidence and self-esteem, enriches relationships, and strengthens morale even for those individuals with significant cognitive impairment.

The arts can serve as vehicles for self-expression, for maintaining a strong sense of identity, personhood, culture, and connection to community.

Our goal is to offer professional and therapeutic arts opportunities to enable older adults to rediscover creativity, meaning and purpose, build and sustain relationships and, thereby, enhance the overall quality of their lives.
