Gari Melchers Home & Studio partners with the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Richmond Chapter to offer Picturing New Connections—a small, welcoming program for people with memory loss, their families, or care partners. These interactive tours include guided discussion in the studio and gallery space, followed by a hands-on art experience. Emphasis is placed on engaging participants through music, touch, and smell.
Each hour-long program features a unique theme, paintings, and art project. Cost is $5 per person. Review our site’s accessibility.
Picturing New Connections (PNC) began with its March 2019 pilot program. Here’s how it all started.
“The friendliness and preparedness of the program made it relaxing and enjoyable. There was no rush at any point. It was a great experience. We could not ask for more.”
“Excellent, kind program! So important for former artists!”
