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 art-making projects in a studio setting.
Together with a trained art therapist from CJE SeniorLife, Art Institute museum educators, and volunteers, participants visit the museum galleries to view and discuss renowned works of art and then engage in related art-making projects.
Participants will enjoy:
Exploring ideas about art and artists during a visit to the museum galleries.
Experiencing intellectual stimulation through creative expression.
Participating in meaningful exchanges in a supportive environment.
Making connections in a dynamic group setting using personal experiences.
Caregivers will be able to:
Explore art while the person in their care is safe and engaged.
Interact, share experiences, and learn from other caregivers.
Individual listening devices will be provided. The program requires light walking with periods of rest and is wheelchair-accessible.
