Why we're here

,

There are those who would have you believe that art is set aside for an elite few. Others would like you to think that artistic ability is something you are born with, enjoy in youth, and should dismiss before “growing up.” This thinking has denied millions the opportunity to discover and share the immense joy that comes from artistic expression.

There is good news, however. In recent years scientists and psychologists alike have begun to unveil the physical and mental health benefits of art. Society as a whole is beginning to understand what those who have experienced art for themselves have known all along.

A few years ago we started fivepencilmethod.com with the belief that anyone could learn how to draw. We are amazed by the comments we receive daily from seniors who tell us they loved art as children but were told not to waste their time on a hobby that would never make them money. Now, in the second half of life, they are convinced they are too old for art.

Senior Artist Magazine is our response to this common misconception. We firmly believe that you are never too old to enjoy art and it’s our goal to provide you with as many tools and resources as we can to help you excel and find fulfillment in your artwork.

We invite you to reacquaint yourself with art, or discover it for the very first time. See for  yourself how art can enrich your life.
