The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia and The Berkeley Retirement Residencies have come together to offer the creative program Artful Afternoon, which provides new opportunities to connect with art for those with dementia and their partner in care.
One Sunday afternoon a month, participants are offered a hands-on studio art experience and an interactive Gallery tour to view original artworks. The program is facilitated by an artist in addition to staff and volunteers from the partner organizations. Ideas for each workshop are inspired by the works on view at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
The program provides:• A relaxed and creative environment to spend time with those you may know and with others you will meet
• An opportunity to visit your provincial art gallery to view and talk about artworks
• An opportunity to experiment with a range of materials and art techniques to create art (no experience necessary)
