MISSISSAUGA, ON – Seniors are in the spotlight! Visual Arts Mississauga (VAM) at Riverwood is proud to launch its innovative ArtReach for Older Adults program today. VAM is pleased to share the magic of the arts with older adults across the City of Mississauga through its subsidized pilot program.
ArtReach for Older Adults offers exciting art workshops under the guidance of qualified instructors to the Region of Peel’s Malton Village, Peel Senior Link and South Common Community Centre. Seniors at these locations will take a creative journey as they explore four months of subsidized art classes. It is estimated that hundreds of seniors will be impacted by the program which brings VAM’s popular art experiences out into the community.
VAM is pleased to partner with the Mississauga Senior Council (MSC) to launch the program. Representing more than 50 senior groups across the City of Mississauga, the MSC has offered its guidance and support of the program which will inspire and build confidence in individuals that might not have regular access to VAM programs. Participants will explore a variety of creative practices including painting, drawing, sculpture and more!
