ATLANTA – By unanimous vote, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners approved $75,000 in funding to support expanded senior arts programming. District 5 Commissioner Marvin Arrington, Jr. spearheaded the initiative earlier this year to implement a pilot program at two arts centers in South Fulton County. The funding will allow the departments of Arts & Culture and Senior Services to expand services to include four additional arts centers located throughout Fulton County.

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Senior Services which expands our arts education initiatives to include seniors countywide,” says Lionell Thomas, Director of Arts & Culture, “This program is a commitment to long term arts programming for Fulton County Seniors and helps to fulfill our Fulton County strategic goal to ensure All People are Culturally Enriched.”

The 8 week program runs October 4 – December 6 with instruction in dance, jewelry making, social media, theater, pottery and visual arts.  All classes are free designed to accommodate a variety of skill levels and students do not have to have had any previous arts training. Participation is open to all Fulton County residents at least 55 years old and enrollment is limited to 20 students per class. Free Uber and Lyft transportation services are coordinated by Common Courtesy for eligible Fulton County Seniors.
