Ceramics for senior citizens is growing in popularity as more seniors discover the rewards of finding a new hobby or rediscover a pleasurable hobby from their past.
As we age, physical limitations might hinder us from enjoying activities that were once part of our lives. Today's seniors are replacing some of those activities with enjoyable ceramic projects that give them a sense of accomplishment while keeping them involved in life.
Many senior citizen centers, ceramic studios and continuing education groups offer ceramic instruction to the older generation. Residents of nursing homes, group homes and assisted living centers are creating ceramic projects that are enjoyable while keeping their minds and hands busy. Seniors living alone find creative expressions to be a pleasurable way to pass the time.
As the trend toward ceramics for seniors continues to increase, the growth of senior citizen fairs is becoming more popular. Many students have the opportunity to sell their creations and supplement their income.
