Arts and crafts positively affect everyone regardless of age, but they are particularly beneficial for older adults. Creating crafts keeps your brain ‘thinking’ as you solve problems and explore ideas. Participating in creative activities such as crafting stimulates the brain and improves focus and concentration. Studies have shown that older adults who participate in cultural programs visit the doctor less, require reduced prescription medications, have less risk of falls, and feel happier and more socially connected.
The COA and crafting extraordinaire Judy Brown have partnered to provide two monthly craft classes at our Lowe Center. All supplies will be included in the class, but feel free to bring something from home that may enhance your project.
March: Join us this month for an Easter Extravaganza Craft Class. First, create cute Bunny Buns to hang on a wall or door. Then, participate in the Surprise Vintage Hat project that is so secret that security wouldn’t allow photos to be taken. You’re sure to love both projects.
Registration is required by March 6
