About Artful Afternoons

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia have come together to offer a fun and creative program for people with dementia and their partner in care. Artful Afternoon provides new opportunities to connect with art.

One Sunday afternoon a month, participants are offered a hands-on studio art experience and an interactive Gallery tour to view original artworks. The program is facilitated by an artist in addition to staff and volunteers. Ideas for each workshop are inspired by the Gallery’s Permanent Collection and special exhibitions.

The program provides:

  • A relaxed and creative environment to spend time with those you may know and with others you will meet
  • An opportunity to visit your provincial art gallery to view and talk about artworks
  • An opportunity to experiment with a range of materials and art techniques to create art (no experience necessary!

Location: Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, 1723 Hollis Street, Halifax

Cost: Free with Registration

Registration: Includes all four workshops to register, please call the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia at (902) 422-7961.
