here:now – Making Art Accessible to People with Dementia

Join us for the Frye Art Museum’s program for individuals with dementia and their care partners. here:now provides gallery discussion tours and art-making opportunities for those living with dementia to enjoy a creative and relaxing afternoon together. 

Gallery Tours
Each month specially trained museum educators and gallery guides lead a discussion-based tour highlighting works of art from the Frye’s exhibitions.  Conversation creates an exchange of ideas without relying on short-term memory or recall of art historical information.  Tours also include in–gallery hands-on activities.

Gallery Tour and Art-making Class
This six-session class offers conversation-based gallery tours and studio art-making experiences for individuals with dementia and their care partners.  Art-making in the Frye Studio encourages experimentation with various media including watercolor paint, clay and collage.  A short social time concludes each class.

Preregistration is required for the tours and the six-session class
