NCCA Online Artist Training in Arts and Aging

National Centre for Creative Aging

The NCCA Online Artist Training in Arts and Aging, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, The Michelson Foundation, and MetLife Foundation, is a free online course for teaching artists interested in learning how to lead lifelong learning programs in the arts that engage older people as creators. This self-paced 12-15 hour training offers an introduction to philosophy, key concepts, methods, and current research from the field of arts in aging. It introduces readers to the life story-based methods developed by Susan Perlstein and Elders Share the Arts, as well as several other approaches and techniques, offering an array of exercises and case studies that exemplify the work that is happening in the field today.
