Our Mission

Art With Elders uses the power of art, creativity, and community to enrich the journey of aging.

Our Vision

Our vision is a society in which every older adult engages in the creative arts as part of a healthy and vibrant aging process.

What We Do

Founded in 1991, AWE engages older adults living in senior communities, attending senior centers, and online across the country in fine arts classes and shares their work and life experience through juried public exhibits. Classes are designed not only to provide art instruction, but social interaction, lifelong learning, and mental exercise as well. Exhibits connect isolated older adults with a wider range of people across the community.
