Who we are

We are a team of professional teachers, artists and community leaders dedicated to providing affordable programs to make the aging journey more comfortable and hopefully more fun!

The driving force of change, says Stuart Kandell, Artful Aging, is the demographic “Age Wave.” Every day in the United States 10,000 people turn 65. Every day! And this will continue for the next 17 years. People 60+ are retiring or working less and asking the question: “what’s next?” They seek new challenges, meaningful activity, ways of staying connected, opportunities to give back, and new skills to help them shape new “careers” for the next twenty to thirty years. Likewise, the growing numbers of people who care for older adults in families and institutions are seeking non medical ways of keeping them engaged, healthy, creative, and happy.

We support the National Center for Creative Aging (NCCA) initiative:

“TO BUILD A WORLD WHERE EVERY INDIVIDUAL FLOURISHES ACROSS THEIR LIFESPAN THROUGH CREATIVE EXPRESSION.”
