Art Therapy is one activity that is a creative outlet for people in whatever stage they are currently experiencing. Parts of the brain that deal with colors and composition can still be used and developed by those with Alzheimer’s. It is amazing that people are able to continue to create art. Working with art can be calming to someone with Alzheimer’s. It may help create a period of sustained concentration that will improve their mood for the day. We feel anyone can be an artist – after all art is in the eye of the beholder!
