Alzheimer’s Orange County Presentation – FREE

inside the artist’s studio

Memories in the Making® Presentation 
August 27, 1-3pm – FREE 

Lasting Impressions: Paintings and stories by persons with dementia  presented by Alzheimer’s Orange County
Lasting Impressions features watercolor paintings created during Memories in the Making®, the signature art program of Alzheimer’s Orange County. Access to creative expression is essential to the human experience and is not lost in a person living with Alzheimer’s. With the stroke of a paintbrush, participants are able to express themselves, often painting memories from long ago or images to represent what they can no longer verbally communicate. The collection also features companion art created by local artists who were inspired by Memories in the Making® paintings.

Upon the completion of a painting, the Memories in the Making® artist is asked to title their work. This becomes a catalyst for conversation and a chance to connect with the participants to better understand who they are and what their life experiences have been. The images are their voice. Lasting Impressions validates their achievements, reminding their family and the community that all is not forgotten.
