Creative Aging

The Creative Aging program places professional teaching artists in various senior sites across Oklahoma City to provide weekly programming that reaches those with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other physical and cognitive challenges.

Classes include different levels of visual arts and creative writing instruction and are designed to make seniors at various stages of their lives feel confident and proud of the work they create.

“We, at Canterbury, have found that this art program draws the residents out of themselves and into a creative and colorful place where they can express themselves freely.  This is especially meaningful to those who are dealing with dementia in its various stages.” -Mary Shrum, Program Director at The Fountains at Canterbury
