(Learning Elders Arts Program) funding enables local seniors' groups, organizations or facilities to hire professional and semi-professional artists to teach various artistic disciplines such visual and media arts, dance, instrumental or vocal music, theatre or musical theatre, literary arts, and folk arts and crafts to seniors.
