Arts and Crafts

Please refer to the Center-Link newsletter for dates and times of Allen Senior Recreation Center programs.

Color Time

Adult coloring presents a creative venture without the need for artistic flair. Like meditation, coloring pages can help adults de-stress, take them back to childhood, and activate both parts of the brain. Cost: FREE
