Please join us for “Community is a Process,” an exhibit featuring artists of the Art With Elders program and hosted by the Tenderloin Museum. The exhibiting artists are residents of the urban heart of San Francisco, although most originate from other parts of the world. The featured works speak to the continuously evolving process of building community in the midst of change, and many reflect expressions of the immigrant experience. Come out and learn about this diverse group of senior artists, and join the conversation. Share your impressions of the works and your notions of community building on our Community Conversation Board.
Free Community Empowerment Art Workshop
Description of workshop:
In Art With Elder’s free Community Empowerment Art Workshop with artist Hugh Leeman, we focus on the process of creating rather than the product created. We embrace the beauty of experimentation to share our stories through the visual language and rich symbolism of art. All artists from first time to master are invited.
Art With Elders will be selling art, books, posters, and, cards at this holiday market event at the La Cocina Marketplace.
The La Cocina Municipal Marketplace, located in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, strives to offer economic opportunity for working-class women entrepreneurs, jobs and a welcoming space for residents, and an innovative model for conscious community-led development for inner cities nationwide.
This event is in conjunction with AWE at the Tenderloin Museum – “Community is a Process” exhibit.
Proof of vaccination and indoor masking is required to attend.
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.
