Info: Sprat Classes

"Creativity is a life-long well spring of vitality and mental health. Involving seniors in art and creative active arts improves brain health, enhances mood, and supports quality of life. This program is a gem!"

Director of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health

 

What are Sprat Classes?

            Supported by the Outside Agency Grant, Sprat Classes are art and theatre workshops for seniors and teens in the Las Vegas valley facilitated by teaching artists from the cast and crew of “Henri”. 

            The workshop participants for the workshop are teen 'scholars' from Core Academy and seniors living at Ovation Senior living properties, to allow for intergenerational interaction and further engagement of the community.

            The class focuses on creating dynamic intergenerational interactions, communication and new experiences.
