The Mobile Museum of Art is now offering a free workshop for loved ones and caregivers dealing with early stage Alzheimer’s patients.

The introduction to MMofA’s Keepsake Training Workshops is September 8, with the international documentary I Remember Better When I Paint, making its Mobile premier at the Museum. This film highlights the power of the creative arts for those living with memory loss such as Alzheimer’s. Guest Speaker Jenny Graf Sheppard, whose work with artist Hilgos is the subject, will introduce the film and lead discussion afterward. The Alzheimer’s Association’s Peter Cowley will also present information about Alzheimer’s research and care in our area.

During the three-week workshop, participants will be provided with the tools to make meaningful connections through art appreciation and creating art. After the training, they may volunteer in the Keepsake Tour Program at the Museum.

The Keepsake program, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, is made possible by the charitable contributions of Ben May Charitable Trust and the Moses Foundation.

Training workshops will be held Mondays and Wednesday, September 8, 10, 15, 17, 22 and 24, 6 – 8 p.m.
