Art and Creativity in Dementia Care Workshop

Art can provide an alternative language for communication - through images, symbols and colours. This full day experiential workshop is for anyone in aged, health or community care services and who is involved in planning and facilitating activities for people with dementia.
 
Participants will work with a wide variety of art materials, both 2D and 3D, and gain confidence in offering a creative expression program for people with dementia.
 
Participants will receive additional printed information and will gain an understanding of:
  • How to set up and organise a therapeutic art group whilst addressing physical and psychological safety
  • How to choose suitable, good quality art materials and stay within a budget
  • How to identify appropriate themes and activities
The day will also include DVD information on the Art Gallery access project and other creative programs.
