Emerson House Memory Care is proud to participate in the SE Portland Art Walk. For people with dementia, the world can be confusing or maybe even overwhelming.
Our Art Therapy program, done in conjunction with the Oregon Alzheimer’s Association Memories in the Making Program and Geezer Gallery, provides an outlet for these emotions through a palette of paints and blank pieces of paper.
With the encouragement of trained facilitators, participants, almost all of whom have no previous art experience, can create meaningful works of ar. The art becomes their voice, allowing them to paint their thoughts, emotions and memories.
2017 SE Area ARTWalk

You will visit the artists' studios, home workspaces, galleries, host homes and businesses within the walkable/bikeable/busable boundaries of SE 9th Ave, SE 41st, SE Powell and SE Hawthorne Blvd.
