Creative Aging: Best Practices for Working with Older Adults
Thursday, March 30, 2017 @ 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Older adults represent a growing segment of our community. In addition to representing a potential market for teaching artists, older adults are often an under-served community without sufficient access to high quality arts programs. Led by Annie Montgomery, Director of Professional Development for New York’s Lifetime Arts, this hands-on workshop will give you an overview of the Creative Aging field: current research that underpins best practices, and how it connects to many areas of artistic work. Come ready to think about your own ideas about aging and how that informs your work, then get on your feet to investigate best practices in lesson design and social engagement for older adults. Snacks will be provided. Bring lunch if you like.
