Artful Afternoon for those with dementia and their Partner in Care
The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia (ASNS) have come together to create an exciting new pilot program. People with dementia and their partner in care will have new opportunities to connect with art.
Participants are offered a hands-on studio art experience and an opportunity to view original artworks in the Gallery, led by an artist and an ASNS staff member and volunteers.
THE PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE:
• A relaxed and fun environment to spend time with those you
might know and others you will meet.
• An opportunity to visit your provincial Art Gallery.
• An opportunity to experiment with materials and art
techniques such as painting, printmaking, and sculpture.
No experience is necessary!
• An opportunity to look at and talk about artworks.
