Connecting through Creativity

Location: Linda and Lou Mazawey Education and Support Center 3953 Pender Drive, Suite 100, Fairfax, VA 22030
Description: As dementia progresses, a person’s ability to engage with others changes. Looking for creative ways to connect? Whether you’re an artist or can barely draw a straight line, art therapy activities can be a great way to engage with your loved one.

In this workshop, we will practice using art materials to relax, be present, and connect with your loved one in a nonverbal way at home. Art therapy focuses on the process of art making more than on the art result. You do not need any art experience or skills to participate! Crista will explain how various materials and approaches to art making support expression and communication for individuals living with dementia.

This program is a part of our ongoing Engagement Workshop series. All sessions are FREE, and held quarterly on the fifth Wednesday of the month from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. Respite care may be available by request; please call to make arrangements.
