Belmont Village Albany with Mei Mei Everson

AWE works directly with our partner communities, which include a wide range of senior living communities and centers, to provide 2,000 art classes throughout the Bay Area each year.

Taught by a team of dedicated professional artists, classes meet weekly in person and online. Participants create art, learn about technique, art history, and engage in discussion. Classes are offered in a variety of languages, including English, Russian, Spanish, Cantonese, and Mandarin. The program is sequential and tailored to each artist’s skill level and areas of interest.

AWE classes bring people with shared interests together, building real and meaningful community, and giving participants opportunities to express themselves through creativity.
