September is Healthy Aging Month

In September, we celebrate Healthy Aging Month – a month dedicated to empowering older adults with what is positive about aging.

At Tidewater Arts Outreach, we think aging makes you brave.

As one gets older, the pressure to get everything right all the time starts to fade. You remember the number of times you tried something just to try it – and succeeded far more than you thought possible.

A woman trying out an acrylics class for the first time experienced that with us this month.

In her own words: “I am just flabbergasted that I was able to paint this! I have macular degeneration, so I did not expect to do much more than visit today. It was a wonderful class.”

What we think is wonderful is that she was brave enough to try it and was rewarded with learning more about her own capabilities.
