Collage & Mixed Media
These residencies engage older adults in creating visual artworks inspired by their life experiences. Led by a professional teaching artist, mediums include painting, collage, sculpture, printmaking, mask making, and drawing. Using a studio session format, these workshops provide older adults with an opportunity to explore their artistic skills and create final works of art. The participants then write a reflective statement to accompany their artwork that tells the story behind their piece.
At the end of the program, ESTA works with the host site to plan a culminating exhibition to present the work created by participants to the site's community, their family and friends, and the greater public. Check out this final exhibit with our SAGE / Griot Center partner!
