Teaching older adults is of special interest to me as an instructor, when I see lives that are being enriched by learning something new. Their growth in knowledge is both invigorating mentally as well as satisfying emotionally. I have had some former students inform me that, after taking my drawing classes, they now have a greater appreciation for the visual arts which makes their museum trips more meaningful. In addition, I love to see the growth in skill as my students continue to study and are now exhibiting their own work which is very fulfilling to them. It gives me great satisfaction as a teacher to enrich their lives.
