Art of Caregiving

Join us for this FREE art-making program – no experience needed!

This is a FREE program for caregivers of the elderly & people with Alzheimer’s/dementia—whether you’re a paid caregiver or someone who takes care of a loved one.

Art of Caregiving is a short series of art workshops, every other week, designed to be creative relief from day-to-day tasks & to inspire artistic adventures— visual journaling, ceramics, painting & jewelry are just some of the “topics” you might encounter…          NO “ART EXPERIENCE” NEEDED!

Each session focuses on an art project, with guidance from a professional artist. All materials are provided.  There are light refreshments & time for informal socializing.

You’ll go home with a kit of supplies & materials so you can make a similar project on your own time—or even share it with the person you care for.

Thursdays: September 28, October 12, October 26, November 9

9:30-11:00 am or 6:00-7:30 pm

The program is ongoing so if you can’t make these dates, give us your email address & we’ll keep you informed about upcoming activities.

It’s all FREE but you must reserve your space in advance.

Each session is limited to 20 individuals.

To sign up or if you have questions, contact Julie at the BBAC:

In Michigan there are more than one million documented caregivers, some whose profession it is and others who care for a family member. Caregivers often sacrifice their own physical and emotional needs in an effort to provide the best quality of life for a loved one.
