Better Health Through Art

Trying new activities and projects are what retirement is all about – not only does it keep our brain engaged and working and solving new problems, trying something new is a great way to meet new people. Personal growth is important and creative arts provide a great way to grow and learn and try something new. Dirigo Pines is pleased to offer many creative arts opportunities each month, including regular art classes. 

Did you know art has proven health benefits? In addition to keeping our minds busy, art can induce both psychological and physiological healing, help prevent feelings of depression and improve hand-eye coordination and concentration. Not only is a great way to express yourself, art can also help you relax, find a sense of control, encourage playfulness, and increase self-esteem. And when you participate in classes like those at Dirigo Pines, it’s also a great way to socialize and meet new people.
