Art With Elders connects the generations by celebrating the wisdom, talents, and creativity of older adults.
AWE provides 2,000 art classes each year for more than 400 seniors in long-term care communities throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Led by artist Mark Campbell and taught by a team of dedicated professional Artist Instructors, elders gather in small groups for two hours each week to learn new skills and create art. This work can be transformative; it provides socialization, fosters creativity and improved cognitive function well into the "Golden Years."
