Inspired Aging

At the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, we believe art education is a part of the lifelong learning journey and seek to provide our community access to meaningful opportunities to create and make connections through the arts.

Inspired Aging is a free studio art course for adults who are 55 and better seeking creative exploration in a social group setting. These beginner-friendly courses include art-making inspired by the museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions. Each course is led by a local teaching artist, includes multiple sessions to build artist skills over time, and concludes with a culminating event to celebrate the participants’ work.

Courses are free but space is limited, so registration is required. Please check our events page to register for upcoming courses. Contact to learn more.
