Sprat workshops focus on creating dynamic intergenerational interactions, communication and new experiences, providing mental, physical and social benefits to our Scholars and senior citizens in the community through creative expression. Using the main tenants of Connection, Sharing, and Creation, Las Vegas-based teaching artists work with local seniors and the Scholars to facilitate special workshops on topics including poetry, storytelling, theater, movement, painting, portraiture, sculpting, collage and more. Scholars and staff facilitate artistic workshops for senior citizens, some of whom suffer from brain and memory impairments.
