No Age Limit: Creativity and Aging

This compilation DVD explores the life-enhancing impact of continued creativity and artistic express–well into the later years! It uses brief excerpts that profile the creative process of elder artists, introduces us to a 90-something actress who grabs life with both hands, and demonstrates how creative expression can even transcend dementia. The DVD also includes a section on the work of the late Dr. Gene Cohen, co-founder of the Creativity Discovery Corps, who was best known for championing the limitless potential of the aging brain.

Six Chapters:

  • The Creative Process Knows No Age Limit
  • Creative Expressions: Three Older Artists
  • The Quilt Artists of Gee’s Bend
  • Imagination Keeps My energy Up: Actress Mimi Weddell
  • The older Artist as Coach: Dancer Frederic Franklin
  • Imagination in the Moment: Dementia and Creativity

This material in this DVD is cleared for use in Distance Learning Classes. This DVD also includes files for insertion for PowerPoint presentations.
