Artful Afternoon

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia work together to provide a fun and creative program for people with dementia and their partner in care to connect with art.

One Sunday afternoon a month, participants are offered a studio art experience and an interactive Gallery tour. The program is facilitated by an artist, staff and volunteers from the partner organizations.  Ideas for each workshop are inspired by the Gallery’s exhibitions.  

Program Provides

  • A relaxed and inspiring environment to spend time with those you know and others you will meet
  • An opportunity to visit your provincial art gallery to view and talk about artworks
  • A venue to experiment with a range of materials and art techniques. No experience necessary!
