for Adult Learners

The Arts are good for you!
There’s no getting around the fact that we all age. The good news is that aging creatively — through the arts — allows us to enjoy and embrace the process. 

SSC is committed to fostering lifelong learning in and through the arts by increasing opportunities for participation in community based programming, collaborating with local Councils on Aging, Senior Centers, residential communities and assisted living facilities.  Partnership programs are designed to to challenge adult minds, stimulate creativity and build vibrant social connections.
