Creative seniors usually enjoy a better quality of life. Encouraging your senior to take an art class is a great way to boost their vitality and longevity. They also will enjoy being surrounded by other people who share their love for art and learn new skills that they can carry over to other projects. Below are a few art classes Pawleys Island in-home caregivers might recommend to their senior loved ones.
Island Art Gallery
Island Art Gallery is a group of 24 local artists. Many share their skills by teaching classes. These classes often focus on painting. They are designed for all ability levels depending on the class chosen, allowing seniors to take a beginner’s class and take more as their skills advance.
Many seniors have often marveled at beautiful blown glass objects. They can learn to blow glass for themselves at Conway Glass. These classes are one-on-one, so seniors can advance at their own speed and get the attention they need to progress.
Nancy Grumman Gallery
For over 10 years, Nancy Grumman has been teaching people to paint. Seniors can find a variety of painting classes at her studio. Grumman has transitioned the garage into a studio where classes are held, so seniors should be able to easily get into this gallery.
Art Museum of Myrtle Beach
The Art Museum of Myrtle Beach holds monthly art classes. Many of these classes are talks given by local artists on how they create their work. Others are more hands-on classes where seniors can make their own creations while learning new and classic techniques.
Under the guidance of Conway’s Parks and Recreation Program, seniors can take classes through Create! Conway. Classes are usually held at Mary Thompson Center at Collins Park. These ongoing classes allow seniors to develop their own creative style.
