Classes & Programs

Seniors

Decatur Area Arts Council offers a series of art classes to seniors in the summer, fall and spring. A qualified teacher shows them examples, they look at art and discuss it, then create their own work of art. Students leave with new skills, vocabulary and knowledge, in addition to a fun arts experience and a great social opportunity.

Provided through a grant from Susan Wade.
