Aging artfully is by design.

Join Christine Mac Shane and three other artists for this exciting NEW program! Artisme classes combine movement, writing, theater and visual arts to build confidence in the creative arts voice. Learn to express yourself in a productive, healthy and potentially lifechanging wayto influence others with Artisme methods.

CREATIVE WRITING Teacher Virginia Partain - "Capturing memories through creative writing."

We will be exploring memories and creativity through writing. You will learn 'vignette' writing with the purpose of capturing memories in a vivid and provocative way. You will explore your voice thorugh activities that will lead to a snapshot/postcard moment in your life that will be captured forever through writing.

PRESENTATION Teacher Whit Mather - "You will create a comfortable way to convey your story (vignette) to others"

Using monologue, theater techniques and improvisation games you will master the skills to shape your story (vignette) into a presentation.

STEP-BY-STEP Teacher Christine Mac Shane - "So many people tell me they're not creative or artistic; that they can't paint. I'm here to tell you 'yes you can' and I can show you how."

Four 90-minute classes that not only cover the basics of creating a painting from the hear, but how to bring your own story life through paint and mixed media.

DYNAMIC MOVEMENT Teacher Janice Hofmann - "Dynamic movement classes help people learn to move with grace, strength, confidence and purpose."

The Dynamic Movement classes will combine principles of Qi Gong, Yoga and Dance to buid an awareness of balance and the sensations of being grounded and centered. From these foundation exercises will focus on posture and alignment as well as strength building and flexibility. Feeling strong and present in our body helps us connect with our innate creativity and express it with confidence.
