Artists at Work as OMA's Spring Semester Begins

Corky & Irving

The spring semester of OMA has begun as the residents of Cedar Village in Mason, Ohio are able to participate in a weekly art class called Opening Minds Through Art (OMA) in conjunction with Miami University’s Scripps Gerontology Department. These residents at Cedar Village, with a clinical diagnosis of dementia, partner up with the gerontology students to create beautiful works of art. The student volunteers, who are simply there to guide the artists, allow the artists to work on their pieces as independently as possible. It is amazing to see the creativity of the residents. It's almost as if their minds become completely alive.

Because of the generosity of donors, Cedar Village was able to expand the class into the Fountain View apartments with a whole new program to enrich their lives and stimulate creative processes. If you have not seen this artwork, please visit www.cedarvillage.org to view these residents in action and see the beginning of what this semester brings!
