Finding Your Inner Artist


If you ever wondered what it would feel like to play a musical instrument, write a play, or paint a landscape, but you think you are too old, think again. The fine arts may be the best way to stimulate brain growth and enhance well being past sixty, according to recent neuroscience research.

Come to hear psychologist Francine Toder, Ph.D., discuss her new book, The Vintage Years: Finding Your Inner Artist (Writer, Musician, Visual Artist) After Sixty and learn how to bring the practice of an art form into your own life.

Hear about some of the late-blooming artists featured in Toder's book, and their health secrets. 

Learn how to bring the practice of an art form into your own life. 

Find out how natural changes in brain function facilitate mastery of the fine arts. 

Become inspired!!

Dr. Toder will have copies of her book for sale for only $10. Her new book, Inward Traveler: 51 Ways to Explore the World Mindfully, will also be available for $10 only on the day of the event. 

For the program and a light lunch a nominal donation of $5 per person is requested.

We invite those with last names starting with the letters M-Z to bring dessert.

Please RSVP by Friday, June 7 online or call / email
