This program features art classes provided at on-site senior housing and community centers in Central New Jersey. The program is designed to provide creative workshops for seniors. It’s the perfect opportunity for those with and without disabilities and, since art is inherently therapeutic, the program lessons are designed to build confidence and autonomy while our community members have fun in the process!
Golden Arts will foster self-expression, creativity, and problem-solving skills through the exploration of shape, color, texture, and more. To ensure our seniors find the right type of experience for them, some of our programs feature one-off classes while others involve a class series. Classes will explore forms of expression including painting, drawing, collage, and mixed media. And each session is designed to stimulate cognitive and fine motor skills.
And we’ve integrated the showing of finished work into a community event!
When appropriate, we will hold Golden Arts Exhibitions during the weekend immediately after the final class in a series. At the Exhibition, individuals enrolled in our classes will be invited to participate in an art exhibit. They will be recognized during the exhibition grand reveal reception sponsored by the Housing With Hope Foundation. This is a great chance to acknowledge the work of our seniors and to include family, friends, and community in the experience with them!
