Inspiring Art workshops for older adults

Partner with us to host a dynamic Creative Aging program for seniors!

T&W partners with NORCs and senior centers throughout the city to offer innovative programs for adults 50 and older.  Like our writing workshops, Creative Aging programs are led by experienced teaching artists who are professional writers, storytellers or visual artists.  Our programs, informed by Gene Cohen MD’s groundbreaking “Creativity and Aging” study, are designed to teach older adults mastery of an art form while building community through social engagement.

Past Creative Aging programs have included:

  • Storytelling

  • Poetry and songwriting

  • Pottery

  • Jewelry making

  • Memoir

  • Painting and sculpture

  • Intergenerational programs with youth

Current and past community partners:

  • VISIONS Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired


  • JASA Coney Island

  • Morningside Retirement and Health Services (NORC)

  • Cypress Hills Fulton Street Senior Services

  • Selfhelp Innovative Services for Seniors, Flushing
