Artfully Aging is a watercolor art program designed for seniors of all skill and care levels. Our holistic approach makes each art session meaningful and therapeutic. We have strived to create a program where every participant can tap into their own creative nature while experiencing a sense of joy and empowerment through participation.
As an experienced watercolor artist, Mary Beth Flynn puts great care and thought into the instruction and structure of her programming in order to meet the physical and cognitive needs of her groups.

It was an activity my husband and I participated in together and looked forward to every week. The artwork he produced is very beautiful. I have framed some of it and the family and I will cherish it always.

Artfully Aging has been a huge help to me as an activity professional during this difficult time. A watercolor painting class is exactly the kind of activity that is needed for older adults of all levels of living right now.

Mom began participating in the Artfully Aging watercolor program when she moved into an assisted living facility. She soon looked forward to the weekly lessons and the companionship of the other residents. Mom’s watercolors are a reminder that we are capable of learning no matter our age.

One of our biggest family challenges was choosing a senior community for my mother, Fern, who was a gifted artist experiencing the beginnings of dementia. My sister and I were overwhelmed with countless tours of local senior facilities. The moment we saw the Artfully Aging painting class in progress, we knew we had found home. Mom thrived on the step-by-step teaching method which encouraged her originality, socializing and joy. In spite of the decline in her ability, Artfully Aging gave recognition to her enduring talent. I will be forever grateful to Mary Beth Flynn.
