Art and dementia: Jeffrey Smart
Discussion and artmaking for people living with dementia and their care partners
Look closely at selected artworks from the Jeffrey Smart: constructed world exhibition. Share ideas in group discussion and create an artwork inspired by the bright urban scenes of this icon of Australian Art.
Offered to individuals with their care partners as well as groups, this tour is particularly for people living with younger-onset dementia. It will provide intellectual stimulation and encourage self-expression with an opportunity for participants to articulate their opinions about what they experience.
This is a creative ageing program for people living with dementia and their partners. Includes group discussion, artmaking and morning tea.
Part of our regular third Thursday of the month program held throughout the year with a different focus each month. Upcoming dates are 16 May, 20 June, 18 July, 15 August, 19 September, 17 October, 21 November and 19 December.
