            Watercolor Art Classes for Senior Centers: Find Projects Your Participants Will Love

Senior centers play a vital role in helping more than 1 million older adults remain active, engaged, and independent each year by offering meal programs, field trips, recreational activities, and other essential resources.

At Artfully Aging, we celebrate all the good work seniors centers do for the individuals they serve. We also know keeping your calendars packed with meaningful activities while watching your budget sometimes feel overwhelming. That’s why we’re happy to provide senior center directors and activity staff with watercolor art sessions that are incredibly affordable and simple to plan!

The benefits of Artfully Aging for senior centers

Senior centers across the country have already successfully launched Artfully Aging watercolor sessions of their own, and because of the positive feedback they’ve received from participants, are continuing to expand their arts programs. So, why has Artfully Aging become the go-to for senior centers?

  • Ready-to-go projects in a variety of themes – Artfully Aging offersdesigns for every holiday and season. Every project includes five prepared watercolor sheets and a step-by-step instructional video with storytelling and reminiscing prompts. Centers can also purchase paint supplies from Artfully Aging for a minimal cost.
  • Easy to plan and lead – Coordinating an Artfully Aging session takes just minutes, and your staff can conduct a session even if they have no watercolor experience! Our “Train the Trainer” videos provide a quick overview of watercolor tips and techniques and guidance for working with seniors with varying levels of independence.
  • A low-cost social and recreational activity – Each Artfully Aging watercolor session costs just $5 per person, and you can order as many projects as you need online.

As Schania Gales, senior center manager of Vance County Senior Center in Henderson, NC, shared, “The seniors at my Senior Center really enjoyed the Artfully Aging program. They are already asking for more projects. I was amazed how fast the watercolor packets and supplies came. This is a great watercolor program for seniors!”
