Spruill Center Launches Arts for Alzheimer's

The Spruill Center for the Arts is pleased to begin Arts for Alzheimer’s, a pilot art education program aimed at increasing the well-being of individuals living with memory loss and their care partners through engagement in the arts. The program is being offered this fall at no charge to participants and is now open for registration.

Each month, teaching artist Amanda Williams will guide participants through an examination of a prominent artist and their works.   Individuals and their care partners will explore a variety of mediums designed to engage and connect them to the monthly class theme and they will create a work of art inspired by that month’s featured artist. In this pilot program, those artists include Henry Ossawa Tanner, Henri Mattise, Hanna Hoch and Claes Oldenburg.

Arts for Alzheimer’s begins September 14 and will be held every 2nd Wednesday through December 14.  Registration is available at https://registration.spruillarts.org/wconnect/ace/CourseStatus.awp?&course=224AFA100

Our Rotary Club is a partner of the Spruill Center for the Arts.
