ARTZ in the Making

Community, Creativity, Connection!

In these engaging, hands-on programs, trained artist-facilitators create opportunities for self-expression via art-making for residents living with dementia in care communities. Using a “process over product” approach, “ARTZ in the Making” encourages both imagination and conversation, and above all, human connection through a range of media.

  • ARTZ is Inspiring – to be a part of a group, to hear how people with dementia respond to being included in lively dialogue, experience and art-making is inspiring in so many ways! ARTZ is Innovative – It is a new way forward that should be embraced. ARTZ is Inclusive – it helps people with memory loss AND their care partners/family members integrate back into society and engenders respect and communication.
