The Arts and Crafts group at SAC.

The Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center (SAC) offers many opportunities for seniors to experience the arts. From tango to modern dance, drawing and painting to guitar and ukulele lessons, the arts are an integral part of SAC’s programming. Among SAC’s fall arts offerings are the programs described below.

All The World’s A Stage provides an interactive look at what happens in the theater—from script to production. Join group leaders Jan Bruml and Drinda Kiner, who have lifelong experience in the theater, on Wednesdays, 1:30–3 p.m., beginning Sept. 13. The class is free; registration is required.

A new season of Creative Expressions will continue to meet on Saturdays this fall and winter under the direction of art instructor Susan Morse. Each session will provide hands-on experience with new media designed to broaden one’s means of artistic expression. No art experience is necessary. This program receives funding from the Ohio Arts Council, which allows SAC to reduce registration fees.

The Arts and Crafts group meets at 1 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month, with facilitators Susan Roberts and Leonne Lee providing project ideas and most materials. Come prepared to learn about a craft, share a fun time, and create something special. This class is free and advance registration is not required.
