Something for Alz: Expressive Art is a free, weekly Zoom session offering people with dementia and their family caregivers an opportunity for socializing and self-expression.

Presented by Alzheimer's Association Hudson Valley Chapter, the program is led by our Lead Teaching Artist and nationally-licensed Creative Arts Therapist Candace Rivela. Sessions will center on a different piece from our museum collection and historic landmarks on the site, coupled with a new theme and art-making activity.

 

"For people with Alzheimer's and dementia, art therapy can really help to reduce agitation, boost mood, and create a sense of pride and accomplishment through the act of creating," - Candace.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the New York State Department of Health.
