We Welcome in Spring 2017!
We are thrilled to be showing off our latest spring techniques and creations!
We started our Spring Fling with watercolor on canvas. Our artists usually have a heavy hand when it comes to painting. I asked Mary Ann if she liked her piece and she said no! So I took it and ran it under running water, removing most of the paint. What was left was this beautiful stained effect of a vase of florals left on the canvas, she loved it and so did everyone else! Here are some other examples:
Our next spring project, inspired by printed paper napkins, was spring flowering bulbs. All the artists were fond of the tulips, and who wouldn’t be! Above is the beginning of Trini’s 3 tulips where she chose 2 napkins for inspiration. Below is the finished work and other examples of our bloomin’ day!
This was an interesting approach! I asked the artists to paint the water in a vase, but not the vase! I gave them only a bowl of water and a little blue paint. We were all thrilled with the results. Then I showed them how the water distorts the stems of flowers and asked them to add spring flowers to their vases. Below are more examples of our Spring Flinging:
I’m very excited to present this current project we are still working on. Each artist selected a color photograph taken at Monet’s garden in Giverny, France. I asked them to paint just the colors and not the images. I did not show them any of Monet’s impressionistic paintings, but as you can see, Louise nailed it! So exciting!!! More examples coming soon.
Would love your feedback and comments at the bottom. Thank you!

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.
