About the Event

Join us Friday May 3rd 10:30AM-12:00PM (EDT) for a special In-Person Café for Care Partners at Woodmere Art Museum

Philadelphia-based mural and multi-media artist Marta Sanchez shares with us the joyful Mexican tradition of “cascarones” in this very special Café for Care Partners hosted at Woodmere Art Museum. Join us in marking the renewal of spring and the lead-up to Mother’s Day!

Marta will guide us in decorating eggshells that she has painstakingly filled with confetti as we use everything from paint to markers to glitter and give free rein to our creativity. In addition to spending some lighthearted time in the company of other care partners, you will go home with the egg(s) you have decorated and, if you choose, participate in the playful tradition of gently cracking the eggshells over the heads of those you love, bringing them good luck as the confetti spills out from the eggshells.

We launched this series of programs especially for the care partners of people living with dementia (usually family members but sometimes close friends playing the same role) to provide engaging, stimulating experiences and relief from the daily grind.

Admission is free with RSVP!

But we ask that you make your reservation(s) as early as possible. Reservations are first come, first served.
