Lifetime Living Through Art Program Returns to the Miami‑Dade Public Library
(Miami, FL – January 28, 2014) Adults 55 and older are invited to get creative at the Miami-Dade Public Library during the new Lifetime Living Through Art program series, which begins on Wednesday, February 5.
This Lifetime Living Through Art program series is supported by a grant to Lifetime Arts by the AARP Foundation and is administered in partnership with the Miami‑Dade Public Library System.
Led by professional teaching artists, the free instructional workshops will engage participants in drawing, painting and photography, with the goal to foster mastery and promote meaningful social engagement – two key ingredients for positive aging.
Interested adults must commit to attending all workshops in the series, and participating in a culminating event to showcase their work. Workshops will be held at the following locations. Interested adults should call the branches to register.
