     Working with volunteer partners, residents have created beautiful works of art in a variety of mediums.  The Opening Minds Through Art (OMA) program allows 30 residents with varying stages of dementia to express themselves through art.  A highlight of each semester’s OMA Program is the opening of the art exhibit including a dinner for the artists, their family members and volunteers followed by an opportunity to proudly show their loved ones the masterpieces they have created. 

      The next session will begin on February 19th. A voluntee with the project said, “I love working with my partner on her art projects. She is so proud of the work that she has done in our classes together.”

  Your donation to the OMA Program will be used to purchase art supplies for the talented artists.
