The group will deliver life drawing classes to people with dementia and their carers, with two local exhibitions displaying the work produced. Creating and showing drawings will boost confidence, decrease anxiety and create new ways for caregivers and families to connect with loved ones. The project also aims to raise awareness of dementia, with sessions observed by researchers, and to contribute to the professional development of arts teachers.
