Memories In The Making is an art program designed for people with Alzheimer's disease. The program was created by the Orange County Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. This book will provide the information needed to facilitate small and medium sized groups, as well as to work with an individual at home.

Alzheimer’s Art Therapy Tours are for those with memory loss and their care partners. Participants enjoy lively discussion of artwork conducted by docents trained by the Brooks Museum and the Alzheimer’s Association, as well as hands-on art-making with an art therapist.
