Senior Art Courses - 2012 ART+experience celebration of seniors in the arts!

Welcome to the 2012 ART+experience, the Mystic Valley Elder Services celebration of seniors in the arts!

**PLEASE NOTE: WATERCOLOR AND OIL CLASSES ARE FULL. Please put your name on the waiting list by emailing We anticipate letting in a few names from the waiting list, so make sure to save a spot!


This year, we are offering six low-cost art courses for seniors (60+) living in Everett, Malden, Medford, Melrose, North Reading, Reading, Stoneham, and Wakefield.


The cost of each course is $10. This registration fee covers all three course meetings, all materials needed for your courses, as well as lunch (if your course meets around lunch time).


Each course meet THREE times. Check the dates closely. We ask that you only register for a course if you know that you will be able to attend at least two of the course meetings. Most courses will be starting a project during the first meeting and continuing to work on that project at the next two meetings. If you have questions, email Erin Kate Ryan, communications manager & ART+experience coordinator at

All courses meet at the Mystic Valley Elder Services headquarters, 300 Commercial Street # 19 in Malden. There is ample free parking. Call for directions.


No one will be turned away for lack of funds! If $10 is too high for you, call (781) 324-7705 to find out about scholarships and pay-what-you-can options. You may also register for classes over the phone or in person.


In order to open these opportunities to as many people as possible, please do not register for more than TWO courses. You are welcome to put your name on a waiting list for additional courses, and we will let you know if there is room after registration ends. To put your name on the waiting list, email your information (including your name, age, town, and the classes) to

And mark your calendar for Tuesday, October 2 at 4:30pm for our closing reception and reading!

We encourage all students to come to our free closing reception for wine and snacks. We'll have space for you to display the artwork that you've created in your class, and we will welcome our creative writing students (and any other writers) to share their work with us.
