FREE INSTRUCTOR TRAINING FOR

MEMORIES IN THE MAKING

Thursday, October 26, 2017

1:00 - 4:00 PM

Memories in the Making

“Memories in the Making” is a watercolor art program resulting from the exploration of the use of art as an alternative form of expression for people with dementia. While dementia brings constant reminders of failures and losses, “Memories in the Making” provides a social - non-judgmental environment in which participants can express their feelings and connect with their memories. The focus is on the process rather than the product, allowing people with dementia to experience creativity and a renewed sense of accomplishment and self-respect.

There will be a FREE Facilitator Training class on Thursday, October 26, 2017, from 1:00-4:00 p.m. at the Newport 60+ Activity Center, 20 SE 2nd Street. If you are interest in facilitating "Memories in the Making" groups, please contact Matthew Gannon at mgannon@alz.org.
