Irving Arts Center's quarterly program offers concurrent art workshops for persons with Alzheimer's and other dementia related illnesses and their caregivers. While their family member of friend is participating in a separate Alzheimer's Association art program (Memories in the Making), caregivers have the opportunity to relax, learn and engage with activities in the visual arts, music and more offered in our series of Creative Arts Workshops designed just for them!
