The Studio Museum in Harlem offers engaging, accessible experiences for visitors of all ages, including older adults. Seniors are welcome at a variety of Adult Programs that include opportunities to share in meaningful conversations with artists, scholars, and curators; explore creative processes through hands-on, studio art-making workshops with artists; and join lively conversations about artwork with museum educators.
The Studio Museum partners with Arts & Minds to bring adults with memory disorders and their caregivers together in new experiences with art. Programs invite participants to share reflections, ideas, and stories inspired by works of art. Through gallery discussions and hands-on art activities, Arts & Minds opens a window to creativity and well-being.
Please call Arts & Minds directly at 646.755.3726 or visit the Arts & Minds website for more information.
Master Classes take place biannually within local senior centers, inviting audiences to learn tactile approaches to art-making from established Artist-in-Residence alumni. These hands-on activities provide a unique opportunity for participants to engage with materials and each other.
This creative writing and art-making workshop invites participants to respond to a work on view, and create a collage using the Museum’s archive of Harlem Postcards as source material. Led by a teaching artist, participants will then write a letter to the Museum, initiating an ongoing conversation with staff.
