Catalyzing Creative Aging Program at Hacienda at the Canyon

Sonoran Glass School staff recently wrapped up an eight-week class at the Hacienda at the Canyon. Participants designed and created sun catchers, plates, bowls, and mosaic projects, and were encouraged to draw upon their life experiences for imagery and inspiration.

You can view the gallery of completed projects on our website.

The Catalyzing Creative Aging seed grant was provided by the National Guild for Community Arts Education and made possible, in part, by generous support from Aroha Philanthropies and the NAMM Foundation. The Catalyzing Creative Aging Program is presented by the National Guild for Community Arts Education in partnership with Lifetime Arts, and includes group training, one-on-one coaching, and funding.

We would like to thank Watermark Properties for additional support.
