Artfull programs are researched-based and have shown to increase participation in the arts and instill confidence in the creators. Rooted in skill-development and creative exploration, there are endless opportunities for residents to uncover hidden talents and discover a sense of purpose.
All Artfull programs can be facilitated by in-house recreation staff or pursued independently by residents. With step-by-step instructions and modifications to simplify or elevate a project, Artfull programs can support a variety of skill levels as well as memory care groups for a community-specific experience.
Life enrichment staff can easily search for a program based on a specific theme, material, holiday, experience level or season. The Artfull Members Portal also includes a robust Facilitator Training section with program implementation tools and strategies for increasing resident engagement.
With unlimited access to 100s of art programs and resources, Artfull Memberships are budget-friendly and cost a fraction of hiring an outside artist. As a member you can use the programs anytime and as often as you’d like.

As Artfull expands its program offerings and members portal, we continuously collaborate with recreation professionals and older adults to ensure that the programs reflect our members’ changing needs and interests.
All of our resources have been thoughtfully designed to overcome age-related barriers and make art programming more accessible to older adults. Artfull has proven to promote creative expression, social connectivity and lifelong learning in senior living organizations.
Keith Haring believed that art should be accessible to all, breaking down barriers and connecting people. He viewed art as a powerful tool for social change, advocating for its role in raising awareness about societal issues such as AIDS, discrimination and oppression. Haring’s work was characterized by bold, simple lines and vibrant colours, reflecting his desire to communicate universally and inspire positivity. His art transcended traditional boundaries, embracing public spaces and street culture to create a collective dialogue that embraced diversity and promoted unity.
