People living with dementia can still enjoy the process of painting, drawing and being creative, and feel a sense of achievement with their finished work. Our first art group started in Pewsey in 2013 and since then we have added groups in Holt, Lyneham and Warminster. 

Creating art can be therapeutic in all stages of life and is particularly helpful for people living with dementia. Our art groups support people to retain skills and are also suitable for those with no artistic experience.

All groups are led by experienced artists or art therapists. Family carers are encouraged to attend as full members of the group, creating their own pieces of art and benefiting from the creative group atmosphere.

In 2018 the groups were finalists in the Outstanding Art and Creativity category at the National Dementia Care Awards.

Our art groups are supported by fundraising and we make a small charge to meet the costs of materials.
