Art for the ages
Millions of senior citizens spend their days isolated and haven't seen a new face in years.
Art for the Ages is a Los Angeles charity organization that aims to serve the aged population through channels of art therapy and connection. We believe that every senior citizen can benefit from person-to-person relationships fostered in a creative environment. We focus on onboarding middle or high school students to the organization to interact with seniors in various homes across the greater Los Angeles area. Through music, visual arts, and performing arts, we aim to improve cognitive function, communication, and many mental and physical functions. It is our dream to make sure each senior in the homes we work with feels loved and supported by their community.
Happy fall! To kick off the season, the residents at Bentley Suites in Santa Monica made yarn heart decorations for their rooms. Full of festive fall colors, it was a great way to get everyone in their autumn spirit.
