Join the “Minds on Art” Group at the Detroit Institute of Arts


Obviously, I know that not everyone who reads this blog, either now or in the future, will be in the metro Detroit area. However, for those of you who are, Minds on Art is a fantastic new partnership between the Alzheimer’s Association-Greater Michigan Chapter and the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). Specifically, it’s a FREE 6 week program for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and their care-partners. This unique opportunity for individuals in the early and mid stages of the disease to create meaningful memories through art includes a 1 hour guided tour and discussion of some of the works in the DIA’s galleries and a 1 hour session in the studio to make your own work of art! Regardless if you are an experienced artist or only a beginner, this program provides opportunities for social engagement and cognitive stimulation in a safe, inspiring environment.
