Learning Elders Arts



Island Artists

L.E.A.P. (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. The group making the application locates a partner artist and together they complete the application.
