Vitality Arts Older Adults Classes

The Vitality Arts program is devoted to the transformative power of the arts and creativity, inspiring vitality in older adults. Classes are geared and designed to improve the health, well-being, and renewed sense of purpose for adults ages 55 and older.

These classes are made possible at a subsidized rate by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Scholarships are available! CLICK HERE for more information and to apply.
