This course is designed for individuals experiencing early cognitive change to moderate dementia and is open to care partners.
Finding Your Creative Flow Through Art is aimed at discovering your inner artist- for beginners, experienced creatives, and everyone in between. This is an invitation to explore new creative approaches to art . . . and to life.
In course, participants will explore different methods and materials to make art that feels authentic and beautiful, and uniquely your voice, because nobody will be able to make art quite like you! Facilitated by a professional artist, each week the course will move at your own pace to explore a variety of art-making processes geared to open up your inner artist no matter where you are starting.
Sometimes the first step in the creative process is just giving yourself permission to do it!
This class will include:
1. A variety of materials including paint, found objects, and collage provided by LiveWell.
2. Introduction to a variety of innovative ways to use household items as texture, shape, line, and inspiration.
3. Considering the limiting beliefs you may hold about creating amazing art and finding your own unique style and voice.
