Moments of Memory… Art from the Hearts of Alzheimer’s Artists.
A non-profit program of visual art expression developed for those living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. With passion and purpose Moments of Memory classes create a safe, supportive environment for social interaction and self-expression resulting in a non-critical and fail-safe experience. Specific techniques enable individuals to focus on a task at hand and experience a sense of accomplishment, counteracting feelings of depression and isolation. Having the opportunity to share the tangible reward of their efforts in a group setting renews self-confidence and trust. Reconnecting with society in a productive community restores a sense of self even in the later stages of the artist’s dementing illness.
ART: I’ve Got Your Back by Babs, created with women’s cosmetics!
