This four-week program invites people living with dementia and their care partners to come together to stimulate their senses and mind through art experiences. Over the four weeks, participants will have the opportunity to engage in lively conversation and hands-on art making activities, such as drawing, painting, and fabric arts. These workshops are designed to build self-esteem, enhance quality of life in a supportive and enriched environment, and build a sense of community. The workshops are facilitated by a professional Artist Educator from the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery and supported by Alzheimer Society staff and volunteers.
$20 (+HST) fee per person
Pre-registration is required through the Alzheimer Society by calling 519-742-1422
