The Senior Center Art Class focuses on the special needs of the elderly.  Classes, taught by local artist Lori Alexander, are scheduled at each of the five Senior Centers.  The classes are presented in a relaxed atmosphere, encouraging seniors to work at their own pace without fear of ridicule or grade expectations.  The students work in a group setting and also receive individual attention.

"This program is supported in part by a Decentralized Arts Funding Grant from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge in cooperation with the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and Louisiana State Arts Council."

Inspire by Grandma Moses, participants of the Hammond Senior Center  art class were asked to draw their idea of a home they would like.  Each artist painted their home and the yard around it and when that was finished, other artists filled in the space between.  This was truly a group effort enjoyed by all who participated to create a mural.
