“This class has changed my life. It allows me to explore my creativity on my own terms, in a supportive environment with others who are not seeking to “improve their skills” but simply express what’s already there inside of them. Eva is a gifted teacher who nurtures each person’s unique light. A life-saver, especially in this time of social seclusion.” – class member 

 The Arts Council of Princeton and Eden Autism have partnered to bring hands-on art experiences to adults with autism. Each week, Eden Arts students enjoy professionally-led art instructions, extending the joys of creativity and self-expression to adults who may not otherwise have this opportunity at home.

Welcoming all levels, from beginner to advanced and in between, to get creative in an unrushed atmosphere! Explore open-ending projects in printmaking, collage, painting and sculpture. Discover the energizing and innately healing of exploring creativity within a supportive community.

The Arts Council of Princeton works on-site and at residences and facilities in the Princeton area to bring professional and specially-tailored arts programming to people of all ages and abilities. We offer on-site classes to the residents of low-income senior housing and adult day care centers.  At the Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit at the University Medical Center we serve those who are coping with dementia and Alzheimer’s. The ACP is a leader in the field of creative aging and is now one of three professional training sites for the National Center for Creative Aging. The Creative Aging programs are supported by grants from by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Church and Dwight Employee Giving Fund, and ACP members and donors.
