Artful Aging

Artful Aging, presented by Oak Street Health, is a series of programs that inspire and enable older adults to learn, make and share the arts in ways that are novel, complex and socially engaging. Artful Aging programs are designed to bring joy, connection, improved health and well-being, and a renewed sense of purpose to older adults.

This program is made possible with support from Oak Street Health. 

Tell Your Tale

This session runs October 9 through December 4 (with no class on November 27).
