Art & Conversation
May 22, 2 pm
Despite memory loss, the ability to respond to art and music can still be appreciated on an emotional level. And sometimes, art and music can act as gateways to past stories and memories. In fact, research shows that visual stimulation through art can help stimulate memory and enhance conversation among individuals who have dementia.
These Arts & Conversation programs, held at various art museums and musical venues across our region, invite people with memory impairment and their caregivers to bond with their peers through discussion and positive reinforcement. Participants engage not only with the art, but also with other members of the group. These groups are free and confidential allowing for freedom of self-expression and open conversation.
Our Museum Educators, trained in Visual Thinking Strategies, lead participants with memory-loss (and their caregivers) in a conversation about selected works of art.
Free for all participants; walk-ins and groups are welcome!
For more information, call 508-385-4477, ext.15

May 15, 1 pm
A hands-on, art-making activity for those with memory loss and their caregivers, The Artist Within provides a warm, caring environment in which to create art. Experienced art instructor Jennifer Stratton will lead these classes once a month at the Museum, where participants can enjoy an hour of creative expression. Classes are free, but we appreciate a call so the instructor can prepare for that session. Call 508-385-4477 ext 15.
