About the Institutes:
As the field of Creative Aging rapidly expands and the demand for sequential, instructional arts programs for older adults redoubles, teaching artists must be prepared to work effectively with active older adult learners in community based settings.

Designed for artists with experience delivering sequential skill-building arts instruction, this multi-day workshop will introduce artists to the emerging field of Creative Aging. Participants will:

  • hear from experts,
  • learn about current research on arts and aging,
  • understand adult learning and the aging process,
  • analyze best practices, and
  • explore how K-12 arts education expertise forms a strong basis for working with older adults.

Areas of focus will include:

  • Engaging Older Adult Learners
  • Differentiated Instruction
  • Ageism
  • Use Of Reminiscence
  • Discipline and Population Specific Best Practices
  • Developing a Mission and Proposal to Work With Older Adults
  • Documentation and Evaluation Methodologies
  • Community Resource Development
  • Intergenerational Programming

Please note: This institute focuses on working with active older adults in community based settings. It does not provide training in art therapy, working with frail, institutionalized older adults or those with cognitive loss such as Alzheimer’s disease.
