Free Registration Required

Art in the Moment invites individuals with dementia and their care partners or family members to the Art Institute for creative discussions in the museum galleries and an art-making project in a studio setting. Participants have the opportunity to explore ideas about art and artists during a visit to the museum galleries, experience intellectual stimulation through creative expression, participating in meaningful exchanges in a supportive environment and making connections in a dynamic group setting using personal experiences. This session will focus on Wonder Years: images of children, family, and childhood remembrances.
