Art Class

So this morning I had the privilege of teaching a collage/mixed media workshop to patients with Alzheimer's and dementia. It was a wonderful experience - there was a lot of laughter and lots of playing. Interestingly, persons with dementia are not inhibited when it comes to the use of color and form. In fact, they embrace it!!

If any of you are artists reading this entry, please consider volunteering. It's only a few hours out of your day to make a huge difference in the lives of others. I had a blast!
