Art Therapy Helping Binghamton Seniors

The First Ward Senior Center in Binghamton, New York, offers art therapy to their residents. This art class gives many older adults a wonderful time and many participants come every week. The class even has an unofficial emblem; a hat with the word ‘Art’ on it created by Patrick Browne, a member of the class. However, each hat is written and designed differently, signifying the uniqueness and individuality of each member. A study done at George Washington University showed that creativity enhances essential connections in the brain and boosts morale and happiness.
