Creative Arts for Life

Art classes for Adults and Seniors - Sign Up Today

SSL Community Art Classes

Creative Arts for Life is a series of adult classes taught by professional artists, designed to provide seniors and adults with the empowering opportunity of creating art in a variety of mediums. The Creative Arts for Life program gives participants the confidence to get started in creative expression and learn a new skill while telling their stories through art. At the same time, participants receive the tangible physical and mental health benefits that art can provide as we age.
Our community art classes give residents and non-residents the opportunity to learn new artistic styles and hone their craft among friends in a welcoming environment.

Free to Residents

Art classes are sponsored by the City of South Salt Lake and are free to residents. Non-residents can attend classes for $40.00.  Non-resident payment due at time of registration by calling 801-483-6000. 
NOTE:  Due to COVID-19, City offices are closed for in-person payments


Art Classes Move Online

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our art classes will now be offered online via a fun and interactive Zoom format.  Each week, participants are provided with a link for accessing the online platform
