PHILADELPHIA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Anyone hoping to ward off the wrinkles and health issues stemming from old age should try picking up a paintbrush.

That’s because research shows that art, whether it’s creating it or simply enjoying it, has amazing health benefits.

It’s proven to reduce stress, improve mental function, and fortify the immune system, which can all help to reverse the aging process for even the oldest of souls.

For this reason, the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging has teamed up with the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance for “Celebrate Arts And Aging Month,” providing discount admissions for older residents to classes, workshops, exhibits, and performances throughout the month.

All the artsy events are sure to help old folks turn back the hands of time.

Senior citizens may even discover a passion for painting, sculpting, or any other creative medium late in life, finding themselves pursuing an all new career.
