artPICKSWTEXT2December 7

Come enjoy a very special art show by members of  Among Friends Respite and Time With Friends Programs.  These artists are people with dementia who, through the program, are able to express creativity through art.   With encouragement from facilitators and one another, the artists gain confidence in trying something new. In addition to expanding their ability to think creatively, the social aspect of the group helps decrease isolation, stress, and depression, and helps them feel a greater sense of control, accomplishment, and self-esteem.  There will be entertainment and light refreshments. Time: 4-6pm  Center 50+  2615 Portland Road NE   503-588-6303
