Creative Aging at the Pember

Join us at the Pember Library in Granville for a series of workshops that will teach a variety of creative and fun projects for seniors. Each Friday from April 7- May 5 at 10 AM, we will sponsor a class in a different art form. Your creations will be yours to take home. You may sign up for one or all of the classes.

Classes are open to men or women with preference being given to senior citizens.  These classes for adults are made possible by a grant from the Washington County Home for Aged Women.

On April 7, Jo-Ann Nadeau will show you techniques for creating imaginative Easter Cards. Besides being inexpensive, handmade, unique cards make a wonderful personal gift.

Kris Gibson will show us a new twist on dying eggs by repurposing silk ties on April 14.


On April 21, Ardyce Bresett will show you techniques for folding book pages into a sculpture.

Zentangle has become a worldwide passion that now has uses in stress reduction, education, and therapy. Bernadette Hoffman will lead you in creating structured designs through drawing various patterns on April 28.

On May 5, learn why researchers and art therapists alike have touted the calming benefits of adult coloring books.

Registration is suggested so we have plenty of materials on hand. Please call the library at 518 642-2525 to register. All classes will take place in the main room of the library. There is an exterior ramp for accessibility to the first floor on the parking lot side of the building.
