Join us to view art created during art therapy, a powerful tool for treating Alzheimer’s. Art therapy gives back to Alzheimer’s patients, in some part, what the disease has taken away. More than creating something pretty to look at or an exercise to keep them busy, it stimulates the brain. It stirs memories and can bring language back into the life of someone who struggles to speak.
“Through the Eyes of Alzheimer’s” is a series of works by Carol Krieger from her sessions in art therapy. Carol is an artist who worked in traditional tole painting, so art therapy is the perfect continuation of a familiar practice. The exhibition will include paintings that Carol has copied next to her renditions.
