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 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.
Racial Equity Statement
Art with Elders strives to meet our student artists – older adults and those living with disabilities – where they are: in the community, linguistically, and culturally. We practice long-term internal equity and inclusion efforts, as we know this is the way to build a welcoming, strong, and comprehensive program. AWE’s equity work seeks to prioritize the voices and experiences of older adults, communities of color, of the LGBTQ community, different religions, low-income individuals and members of the disabled community. We know that artistic endeavor has the capacity to cross all human boundaries. Read our complete statement: https://www.artwithelders.org/mission/
