Training Description:

The teaching artists who completed the “Creative Aging Foundations” training in July, will return for more in-depth professional development training in creative aging best practices with the Lifetime Arts team.

Over the course of three intensive sessions, participants will:

  • Do a deep dive into an examination of creative aging design elements and experience activities to:
    • Assess their creative aging students
    • Provide social engagement opportunities
    • Establish positive feedback protocols
    • Share experiences and ideas about how these design principles might be applied in their own artforms and practices
  • Create their own creative aging curriculum

During the third session:

  • Participants will exchange feedback and ideas about one another’s curriculum to support the development of one another’s work
  • Lifetime Arts trainers will facilitate dialogue in small groups and lend their own ideas and expertise to the feedback that each participant will receive
