Art therapy is based on the believe that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, and achieve insight as described by the American Art Therapy Association.
Our Masterpiece Program, led by a licensed art therapist, uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our residents. Our specialty creative arts room offers a blank canvas for self-expression of our residents fostering increased self awareness and personal achievement.
Through art therapy, residents with dementia have experienced rewarding opportunity to showcase their artwork in our annual art auctions in which proceeds benefit Alzheimer’s research. Visit our community to view our fascinating collection of original resident artwork created by those living with memory loss.
