“Experience/Arts” is made possible through a grant – one of only 15 awarded nationally – from Aroha Philanthropies, through its Seeding Artful Aging initiative. It will bring eight eight-week classes (two each to the Lebanon, Plymouth, Littleton and Haverhill areas) to Senior Centers and community arts sites. Classes will be offered on a donation basis, and will be open to all those 55 and older.
Over the past 15 years, GCSCC and AANNH have worked together to bring arts activities to senior centers within Grafton County, but this initiative will deepen and broaden the arts learning opportunities available and accessible to older adults throughout the region. Artful Aging programs are intended to inspire and enable older adults to learn, make and share the arts in ways that are novel, complex and socially engaging.
