WORKSHOPS FOR SENIORS
Conducted by Anne Fielding and Jeffrey Carduner
“Seniors hear a fresh understanding of themselves, the world, other people!” —The Queens Tribune, NY
Since 1994, thousands of senior citizens have attended these workshops—at centers and senior residences in the New York metropolitan area, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, and Florida. Through them, men and women get new hope, new perception, as they learn—with magnificent practical immediacy—what Aesthetic Realism explains: the most urgent need of every person is to like the world on an honest basis. And these lively and kind talks—with audience participation—show seniors how they can authentically like the world, and what interferes!
You can view and print a brochure about these workshops.
Some of the exciting presentations you can arrange for your center or living community:
Ms. Fielding and Mr. Carduner speak deeply about what they themselves have learned from Aesthetic Realism….and through instances of drama, poetry, and paintings by such great artists as Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Picasso, Renoir — and Grandma Moses — participants are thrilled to see what Aesthetic Realism explains: the questions of life are answered in outline in the art of the world.
“Your presentation was fantastic. The seniors were so, so happy. You can quote me.” — Program Director, Senior Center
“All had positive experiences and lasting effects. Participants stated they felt more confident and aware.Thank you.” — Program Manager, Senior Center
“I wish to express my highest appreciation for the presentations in Aesthetic Realism at our senior centers. Directors of the centers told me these were tremendously useful, lively events. Seniors loved them.” — Executive Director, Senior Centers, NY
The presentations can be translated simultaneously into Spanish by Dr. Jaime Torres (standing second from right above), an Aesthetic Realism Associate and an Advisory Board member of the National Hispanic Medical Association.
