COVID-19 Safety Notice: This program is currently on hold. Our primary concern is the health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff. Because so many participants in early-stage programs are at higher risk or care for those who are at higher risk, it would not be prudent to hold in-person meetings. Our team is closely monitoring the pandemic and evaluating the factors that may influence our decisions to resume programming.


Memories in the Making® is a unique fine-arts program for people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.

Art experience is not required.

The program's creative process provides a safe and validating environment for artistic expression, resulting in a creative and nonverbal way to communicate and capture precious moments through art.
