Jewish Family & Children’s Service is offering a second session of Creative Aging classes – participatory arts classes for boomers and other seniors – Feb. 27-April 3. The classes are planned as three six-week sessions at four different locations around the Valley. Arts disciplines include dance, readers’ theater, vocal music and storytelling.
In the first six-week trial session, 36 people between ages 63 and 94 participated in the classes. Janet Arnold, JFCS director of the Creative Aging program, said, “We’ve gotten great feedback, from comments like ‘I need this class for my mental health!’ to ‘I’m having a great time, and my kids are so happy I’m taking this class!’ ”
