Memories in the Making and a Big Smile

Memories in the Making is an art program for people with dementia sponsored by the Alzheimer's Association. Each week, artists in care communities participate in an hour of painting where they can communicate thru art and share some of the memories from their rich past. Photos or still life objects are often used for inspiration.
I help coordinate the program for Colorado Springs, CO and love when I get to visit a MIM session and see the happines and big smile on the faces of the artists. Art brings joy to all of us in many, many different ways.

  1. Martha - what a blessing this must give to you as well as to the residents as well. Also loved your painting from the previous post as well as the quote - very insightful. Thank you as always for sharing.
