In follow up to the NCCA 2012 Arts and Aging Core Training for Teaching Artists, the Marcia P. Hoffman Performing Arts Institute at Ruth Eckerd Hall has offered approximately twenty Creative Aging programs  throughout Pinellas County in a variety of locations such as: The Hoffman Institute, Dunedin Fine Art Center, Painted Fish, OLLI at Eckerd College, Aging Well Center, North Greenwood Recreation Center and Creative Clay. While the programs represented a variety of art forms, the teaching artists employed techniques to engage older adults in learner-centered arts education that draws on older adults’ life experience through story.
