Have you enjoyed an Artful Aging class yet? We’re wrapping up a few classes here in our second year of Artful Aging Classes: Acting 1, taught by Ed Breese, Film and Darkroom Photography, taught by Katie Sheffield, and Afro-Caribbean Drumming/Creative Movement, taught by Dr. Arnold Nyarambi. These are classes that teach adults 55 and older new art skills. Check out the culminating events for these classes where the students get a chance to show off their new skills. These events are all free and open to the public, and all offer light refreshments.

Dr. Nyarambi will discuss African culture and the types of drums used. Traditional African foods will also be served! Click here for our Facebook event link.
