What age do you have to be to start creating amazing works of art? At what age do you stop producing truly inspiring pieces? Encouraging older adults to take up the arts and express themselves is a natural fit for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s focus on individual well-being. Studies show that seniors active in the arts report better health, have more positive attitudes and are more active.
The Art is Ageless® program encourages Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through an annual art competition and exhibit, musical and dramatic events, educational opportunities and current events discussions.
Art is Ageless encompasses:
- related instructional opportunities
- partnerships within the community
- physical and mental stimulus
- an annual juried exhibit and competition
Residents and friends of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s Art is Ageless program are proving that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition, whether you picked up a brush for the first time before reaching 20 or completed your first drawing after turning 80.
The Art is Ageless program is one way PMMA supports a philosophy of empowering older adults to live the way they want to live.
