Painting Memories- Alzheimer's and Art


Painting Memories – Alzheimer’s and Art was a collaboration between local artist Ruth Reid, Cindy Pilkey, Activity Coordinator for the Alzheimer Society Sudbury-Manitoulin North Bay and Districts Day Program, and Nancy Gareh, Curator of Education and Public Programs for the Art Gallery of Sudbury.

The goal of this resource is to improve basic of daily living skills and to provide art activities for a recreational pastime. Painting and creating art provides a way to reach inside ourselves and express feelings that we are unable to express in any other way.
