A New Rx for Healing: A Dose of Art-Creative Aging Opens at The Phillips Collection
The Phillips Collection and Iona’s Wellness and Arts Center have created a program for older adults that combines museum education and art therapy. The program uses art to stimulate creativity and spark discussions about the pieces. Participants visit art galleries to learn about the famous works of Renoir, van Gogh, and Picasso. They then discuss the paintings and create their own works of art that reflect the themes of each lesson. An exhibition of participants’ artwork was on display at the Phillips Collection throughout the month of November.
