Memories in the Making
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Alzheimer’s Association Memories in the Making® is a creative art expression program for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. Even after people with dementia have lost the ability to use words, they are often able to express thoughts and emotions and to share memories through painting with watercolors. The experience offers an opportunity for the essence of who they are and what they care about to shine through. The artist names and creates their piece; making it their own creation and story. Pieces are selected from the workshops that have taken place throughout local facilities in the Quad Cities area. The artwork is then professionally framed and auctioned at the Memories in the Making Art Auction.
