Art activities are a powerful tool in the fight to improve the quality of daily life for people living with dementia. Art is lively, expressive and non-verbal; providing an accessible outlet for creativity while stirring memory and enabling personal choice.
Two identical-looking color reproductions of a masterpiece appear side by side — but a careful search reveals a variety of subtle differences. In addition to providing hours of challenging fun and sharpening observational skills, this book encourages art appreciation and offers fun facts about paintings and artists. Featured works include van Gogh’s Self-Portrait, Munch’s The Scream, Gainsborough’s The Blue Boy, plus paintings by Cassat, Manet, and Goya.
