A Visual Story Through Self
We are excited to share the artworks of Openhouse artists in A Visual Story Through Self. Openhouse works to center the voices and experiences of LGBTQ+ older adults by providing opportunities to make social connections and build community. These artists encompass the dynamic diversity that enriches San Francisco. Their artworks were made in community art classes with Art With Elders. AWE uses technology and art to bridge the isolating divide of the ever-changing circumstances of the pandemic. This show represents a rich tapestry of varied perspectives woven together through the dynamic language of visual art. These artists’ visual stories remind us that connection is an ongoing creative process that results in an ever-evolving community.

Art With Elders (AWE) uses the power of art, creativity, and community to enrich the journey of aging. Art With Elders engages older adults in senior residential communities, senior centers, and living independently in weekly fine art classes with a view to exhibiting their work.
Weekly art classes are the core of what we do. We offer free introductory classes for individuals, residential communities, and senior centers. Online and In Person options available. Contact us at info@artwithelders for more information.
Art With Elders believes in showcasing students’ artistic achievements. Every year, class participants can submit their work for the Annual Exhibit, a professionally juried collection of AWE’s finest works. AWE shares the extraordinary talents of elder artists with the community by exhibiting selected works in venues across the Bay Area, and online.
Art With Elders uses the power of art, creativity, and community to enrich the journey of aging.
Our vision is a society in which every older adult engages in the creative arts as part of a healthy and vibrant aging process.
