To brighten our artist’s rooms they created Floral Garlands! They painted fresh, bright summer colors with acrylics in solids and visual textures as the first step in their garland project. Whimsical florals are drawn on the back of the painted paper and cut out. Circles are cut or torn and layered to create the centers for their fantasy florals. Leaves also adorn some of the florals for added dimension. They attached the florals to green yarn to create a 6′ long garland to adorn their windows or walls!
Our News from 2015
Alzheimer’s. George was the manager of Summit Racing Equipment and very sadly passed away in 2011. In honor of George, everyone’s sporting a mustache! To make sure George could hear us…the family released purple & silver star balloons while all the cars honked their horns…the only thing left were hugs and tears.
WE MISS YOU GEORGE!

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 illness.
ART: I’ve Got Your Back by Babs, created with women’s cosmetics!
