Food for Thought at Hoag Center for Healthy Living

A Creativity Program with Adult Brain Health in Mind

The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity has designed this Food for Thought Program to exercise memory, executive function, visual function, visual language and association through creative projects that provide every day tools to enhance cognitive function within the aging brain.

When we combine creativity with using our hands while visually engaged, we use multiple areas of our brain all at once, making vital connections. Using one’s creativity throughout a lifetime positively impacts the retention of intelligence gained from accumulated knowledge and a lifetime of experiences.

As a recipient of grants from the Newport Beach Arts Commission and the Schnall foundation, the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity can offer this 4 week program for free. Food for Thought is limited to 16 participants able to commit to the 4 week program. Registration deadline is August 22.

The weekly programs are scheduled for Wednesday's 9/5, 9/12, 9/19, 9/26, the scheduled time is  5:30 - 7pm.
