Memories in the Making is an Alzheimer’s Association art therapy program for individuals with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Volunteer facilitators help people with dementia – many of whom often have no art background – create drawings and paintings. These sessions provide participants social interaction and boost their self-esteem while opening the channels of communication with loved ones.

Today’s featured Memories in the Making artist is Jean. Jean is a longstanding member of the Memories in the Making group. She is a very talkative, upbeat woman who clearly cares about those around her and will happily take your hand and stroll from room to room. Jean grew up on the east coast, where she was a tap dancer for many years. She often enjoys sitting and watching the other group members as they work, and loves to mix the paints and watch the colors develop. Jean also enjoys working “wet onto wet”, using the technique of covering her paper with water first, and then adding colors that blend into one another. Jean has a big personality, and is a great member of the group.

Jean’s painting is just one of the many works of art that will be auctioned off at our annual Memories in the Making Art & Wine Auction, held this year on March 1 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. In addition to work by Memories in the Making artists, the silent and live auction selection will include fine wines, unique experiences and luxury items.
