Creative Aging Open House at Main Street Arts

SAXTONS RIVER, VT — There will be an open house for a new Creative Aging program at Main Street Arts from noon to 2 p.m., Saturday. The event is free and there will be a free lunch for older Vermonters in attendance. RSVPs are requested and can be made at

There event features live music from Main Street Art’s very own string band. Seniors will be able to preview classes, meet the artists and check out artist demonstrations.

There will also be classes in Memory Book Boxes with Amber Paris and Jewelry Pendants, Art Journaling, Mosaic Mirrors and more with Susan E. Rosano.

“When we piloted MSA’s Creative Aging program last spring with 15 older Vermonters, many were surprised at how creative they could be. There’s research showing that creativity actually increases with age—contrary to the idea that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. We celebrated the eight-week course with an art show of their work,” said MSA Director Susan Stills. “The group had such a good time. They scheduled a lunch after the course ended. Expressing creativity and making social connections is good for your health!”
