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 in fine arts classes and shares their work and life experience through public exhibits. Through classes and exhibits, the AWE program provides older adults with a vehicle for self-expression, social connection, and a presence in the larger community. Classes are taught in person and online by professional artists and are available in 5 languages. Exhibits engage artists and audiences through the power of creativity, deepening connection between cultures and generations.
