“Joy in the Journey” Program

ACA is proud to have “Joy in the Journey” as an ongoing exhibition throughout 2017. Joy in the Journey connects Aiken residents living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia with a therapist provided by the Arts Center who works with them to create an original painting. The therapist uses everyday pleasures such as singing, painting, storytelling and praise to stimulate change in the brain and provide a rewarding experience for the client. These beautiful paintings are available for purchase benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association SC Chapter and will be on display in the ACA galleries throughout 2017, with new paintings arriving monthly. Stop by and see these remarkable works of art.
