Not "art therapy" per se, but a mind-brain-body therapy with acrylic painting - and a first-ever attempt at a self-owned and operated business that didn't get off the ground in 2012-13, but left me with learning a bunch of interesting stuff about entrepreneurship, online studying, brain functioning and healing, the brain and learning styles, how to use acrylic paint (somewhat), how nursing homes/elderly residences work and so on. It also left me with some graphic design pieces made to promote the services that I never really started to offer...such as this business card.
What is Art Without Boundaries, you ask?
Well, it is a wonderful program that uses a unique system - MnemeTherapy ("nematherapy") - to help people with Alzheimer's disease and Autism.
MnemeTherapy® uses everyday pleasures such as singing, movement, painting and story telling in a unique combination to stimulate dramatic changes in the brain. Although the goal is to provide a rewarding experience, documented testimonies show significant improvement in some clients in verbal skills, mobility, combativeness, spatial acuity, understanding instructions (plus much more!).
