Creative Engagement

At Luther Manor, Creative Engagement is about more than simply expressing creativity. Our professionally conducted programs are designed to engage participants in activities that maintain and develop their interests and skills, as well as improve their overall quality of life. Whether they pursue painting, gardening or another form of artistic expression, these creative outlets help to promote wellness and a sense of community. Our program also includes individual-oriented activities, such as sewing and fishing, to promote positive personal reflection.

Participants can choose from:

  • Fine Art
  • TimeSlips
  • Collaborative Projects
  • ArtCare
  • Art for Life
  • Sewing club
  • Gardening committee
  • Living Art

Community partnerships also provide creative engagement opportunities for program participants. A recent creative collaboration between Luther Manor, Sojourn Theater, the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Center on Age and Community and UWM theatre department resulted in a large-scale professional performance. Inspired by the story of Penelope from Homer's Odessey, the culmination of the collaborative effort was The Penelope Project.
