Spotlight on Judith Zausner

Judith Zausner is in the news!  Judith's article Creative Entrepreneur is a True Believer was published in the November-December 2009 issue of Aging Today, the American Society on Aging's (ASA) bimonthly newsletter.  Scroll down to page 10 and you can read Judith's insightful article in this national newsletter.  She talks about her work and shares an example of how reconnecting to creative activity changed a woman's life in such a positive way.

"Creativity is the engine that makes things happen."

And since you're already there on ASA's newsletter, why not enjoy reading the other great articles about aging creatively, such as The Light of a New Creative Age by TimeSlip's Anne Basting & Peter J. Whitehouse on page 7; The Creative Age Explores New, Uncharted Waters by  National Center for Creative Aging Director Gay Hanna; "Journeys" is a Meaningful, Many-Storied Quilt by Mimi Schreiber; an interview with 83 year old artist Bobbi Gray; and an excerpt from Richard and Alice Matzkin's book The Art of Aging.

In addition to being a CAAN Board Member, Judith Zausner is a consultant, teacher, designer and writer who works to empower elders and people with disabilities through creativity. She is the owner of Caring Crafts, Inc., which provides craft kits for adults who have fine motor skill difficulties and/or cognitive problems, and writes the Creativity Matters blog.
