Memories in the MakingĀ© Art Program

We are thrilled to be the only group in Arkansas (at this time) using this nation-wide art program for people with dementia through the Alzheimer's Association.  Staff members and volunteers were trained in July 2007 and we began our first group of 'artists' in August - with very encouraging results!  Participants who have never painted before produce wonderful works of art.


The best part (for the staff and volunteers) is seeing the self-confidence and self-esteem of our participants grow when they create a thing of beauty.  "I didn't know I could paint!" is a common reaction.  Along with creating something beautiful (and often worthy of framing!), painting provides an alternative method of communication, and often triggers memories for the artists.
