Art After 60

Art for seniors, supported by Bainbridge Community Foundation

In 2008 – fittingly, the year of our own 60th anniversary – BAC launched the Art After 60 program, which sends our artists into local retirement centers armed with art supplies and project ideas.

September 2013 at the MARCThe hands-on program was a success from the get-go. Participants who haven’t picked up a brush or a piece of pastel in decades are amazed at what they can create and delighted at how good it feels to make art.

Art projects also serve as a platform for socializing, telling stories, and sharing histories – all of which promote health and well being!

We visit Wyatt House, Madison Avenue Retirement Center,  Madrona House and Bainbridge Island Senior Center once per month.

If you are an artist or a senior center representative who wants to participate or learn more, contact Programming and Outreach Director Georgia Browne,
