Mary Crescenzo, Teaching Artist

description

In this interview with literary teaching artist, Mary Crescenzo, she talks about her first experience with teaching older adult learners, and how this experience led her to instruct adult education courses in theater, visual, and literary arts at various colleges in New York, Tulsa, and Santa Fe. This also led to her creation of an arts and Alzheimer’s program using watercolor, music and movement, called “An ABC Approach to Alzheimer’s Awareness and Care Through the Arts.”
