Hobbies for Life

I have just finished six weeks of classes at Evergreen Retirement Community.

One gentleman, Don, is 90+ and still a wonderful painter.

It got me to thinking about the aging process and how important it is to have something that you love to do that will keep you interested in life until the end of life.

Hopefully that is what art will do for me. That is, if I can remember where I put my art supplies!

(Sorry, no photos with this one - forgot to bring my camera to any of the classes!)

What fun to be teaching watercolor to seniors, Deb :) I bet they had great fun and learned a lot, too. I just watched a program about the brain and how "plastic" it can be, even in old age - the more we keep learning new things (even things that are hard at first), the more plasticity we build into our brains = the stronger they are! You know watercolor will always keep you growing.
