As noted by the Joyful Heart Foundation, creative expression enables us to communicate our inner selves to the world around us. It has intrinsic value and connects us to others by sharing a story. It gives voice to the knowledge inside us about what we need to find our joy.
Artistic expression can be enjoyed in a variety of forms such as:
- Painting and drawing
- Needle work
- Creative writing
As experts in healthy aging, expressing ourselves through art is not just good for the soul, it is also very beneficial to our minds and bodies.
Creative artistic pursuits provide older adults with multiple benefits, not the least of which is enhanced cognitive function. Primeplus Senior Center will be offering two new art programs in July. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register or call 757.625.587 by July 6th.
