SPARK!

Discover FREE art experiences for people with memory loss and their caregivers at the RAM’s Wustum Museum and the Racine Art Museum. Developed to provide a stimulating, yet non-threatening atmosphere, these creative experiences encourage the person with memory loss to actively engage in the moment and leave with a feeling of accomplishment and worth. Each program offers a unique mix of engagement focused activities explored through visual art conversation, sensory stimulants, creative writing/poetry, music, the art of movement and hands-on art making.
