  • You will have an opportunity to analyze and evaluate your ideas about aging, and how that informs your work with older adults.
  • This training will introduce you to social engagement techniques that support building community amongst participants, but also intentionally lead to art-making and learning.
  • You’ll learn about exemplary organizations that actively engage the lifelong learning model in their older-adult arts programs.
  • This training will provide you with the structures and tools you need to plan and implement Creative Aging programs at your library.
