I was going through my posts and realized that I have not done a blog posting on my connection with the National Centre for Creative Aging. The National Center for Creative Aging is dedicated to fostering an understanding of the vital relationship between creative expression and healthy aging, and to developing programs that build upon this understanding.
In London, Kathy Smith is the first Creative Age ambassador and from what I can see, she is the first in Canada. I achieved my accreditation this past Sept. and look forward to working in the community to foster creative endeavours for seniors. Since last spring, I have been fortunate enough to go to senior's homes and teach painting classes. I look forward to growing in my participating of helping, not only seniors, but adults as well on learning how to paint and draw. I have started this by offering classes through my studio. I have some Learn to Paint classes which are running but I plan to add half and full day seminars as time goes on. This is my focus for many years into the future. I am so fortunate to have a studio where I can not only teach but create my art.
This blog is to showcase my ongoing work.
