The SMARTS Program (Shiawassee Mobile ARTS for Seniors) provides hands-on experience in artistic creation to dozens of Shiawassee County seniors each month. This program allows them to express themselves, includes them in the community, and improves their quality of life. By way of professional artists/instructors, this program also extends opportunities for the kinds of creative experiences that can help seniors grow, further their well-being, and enrich their lives.

For more information about the SMARTS Program and schedule of classes call the Shiawassee Arts Center (989) 723-8354.

All classes are $3 for seniors and $5 for family or friends under age 60 who are accompanying a senior.

*New – if you bring a new participant to the class, you both will receive a free
class that day!*

*Also, seniors can receive one free class during their birthday month!*
