WELCOME…our Gallery of Art by Alzheimer’s Artists!

Techniques used by our artists were specifically developed by Lynette Schweigert to provide a no-fail art experience for the artists. The artwork is a multi-layered water color and/or acrylic paint and plain paper technique taking from 1-3 classes to complete…the journey is the reward, the art is the award!  Alzheimer’s artists usually have no previous art experience from which to draw their inspiration, techniques or talents.

 The Paper Palette process is a multi-process  technique.  Artists initially create a color library of painted paper using sponges, wet or dry paper dabbers, sponge brushes and other miscellaneous items to put paint to paper. When dry the painted paper is sorted by color and put in clear envelopes.  Some painted paper is kept intact to be used as a background, the first step in beginning a new work of art.  The color library is now ready to be used as an inspiration to artists. After colors are selected, the strips are torn, or cut, and applied over a selected pre-painted background. Torn paper is secured to the background with sponges and thinned white glue. The layering process may take as many as 3 classes to complete. The artists finish their work by applying a thin glue coat to the entire piece.

Other techniques used are: “Blushing Memories Cosmetic Art” art created using women’s cosmetics which have been donated to the program, feather painting, tissue collage, water color, pastels, watercolor pencils, sponge stamping and leaf+twig+fruit stamping!

    I can’t express how this art touches me. I own several pieces and they are very treasured. To be someone that’s family member suffered from Alzheimer’s and have a piece of art that they made when they couldn’t even remember who I was, would be amazing. My Father had Alzheimer’s and I wish this art class had been there for him. I thank you from the bottom of my heart Lynette for creating this opportunity for others.
