But it makes them no less meaningful or life changing.
William "Bill" Singleton of Woodstock stumbled upon his knack for drawing at age 63 when he took a night school class.
Now, at 84, he is the oldest instructor at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Kennesaw State University.
The institute, which is a part of the school's College of Continuing and Professional Education, offers educational and social opportunities for adults age 50 and older.
For the past eight years, Singleton, known as "Mr. Bill" to students and faculty, has been teaching people of all ages the joy of art in his pencil, pen and ink drawing classes.
Not long after moving to Cherokee County about 12 years ago from his hometown of Buffalo,
N.Y., he enhanced his drawing hobby by taking classes at a senior center in Cobb County.
