Presented by the National Center for Creative Aging, this highly interactive seminar will focus on how arts learning fuels human development in later life. We'll begin with a review of the latest developments in the rapidly evolving field of creative aging, including new discoveries about the powerful impact of creative activities on the brain. We'll examine how older adults learn and continue to develop their potential, and we'll dig into the design, implementation, and evaluation of effective, sustainable programs in three arenas: skill-based lifelong learning, therapy-based health and wellness programs, and intergenerational community engagement. The importance of tapping the life experiences of older adults - finding and framing their stories - will be explored using case studies and evidence-based practices in multiple disciplines.
