About this pro

The Life Enrichment Center for the Arts (LEC) is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is for our students to fulfill their lifelong creative potential through the ageless engagement of the arts.

The LEC is an innovative arts education center for adults, operating in North Tampa’s Forest Hills neighborhood since 1980. It is one of only a few centers across the country focused on redefining and reshaping retirement and the experience of aging. Its cultural arts program has received national and international recognition and serves as a model of a successful community-based organization, serving adults primarily 50+.

Over 25 classes are offered each week, including creative writing, drawing, pastels, oil/acrylics, crochet, watercolor, sculpture, Tai Chi, low impact, Mah Jongg, and bridge. LEC members are experiencing the most creative and dynamic times of their lives.

Active engagement in the arts has proven to be beneficial to the health and well-being of every aspect of our lives. Research shows the benefits of cognitive, social, mental, and physical engagement to stepping gracefully into the future while remaining active, independent, productive, and healthy.

Please stop by for a tour. We would love to meet you!

    I started at the LEC about three years ago. I truly love the people and the opportunities to learn the LEC has afforded me. I love learn, socialize, paint and draw. They both challenge and teach me with personable professionalism.
