Making Sense of Art

Adults from senior care facilities, retirement communities, and independent learning centers are welcome to join theme-based art lessons for a multisensory experience. Led by docents, this program actively engages participants through thoughtful observation of an artwork, sharing ideas, and relating narratives to their own life experiences.
