“Sheltering in place” just got more creative! Scottsdale Arts’ Memory Lounge: Home Visits program brings professional artists and creative activities to you, twice each month, during the pandemic. It is a program for people living with dementia and their care partners, and it is also a creative aging program open to others interested in joining in! 

Home Visits is a virtual program, delivered by Zoom—an easy-to-use online application.  

Free workshop – $10 for supplies
Please register for the dates that interest you. 

We will provide a kit for each visual art workshop at a nominal cost of $10 per person. Kits will be mailed to your home in advance of the workshops. 

September 18 and October 2, 1:30–2:30 p.m.: Ceramics with Danielle Wood 
Create a ceramic bowl and apply glazes. This is a two-part workshop; participants are encouraged to attend both sessions.

October 16 and November 6, 1:30–2:30 p.m.: Music and Movement with Shannon Wallace 
Join us for a combination of music, movement, memory, and mindful inspiration—recommended for anyone who would like to thoroughly enjoy working out, no matter your physical or mental ability or limitation. *Shannon is a certified dementia practitioner (CDP). No cost or kit needed; registration deadline is October 12. 

November 20 and December 4, 1:30–2:30 p.m.: Embroidery, watercolor, and beading with Christy Puetz 
Nov. 20: Have you ever considered embroidery on paper? Christy makes it easy with step-by-step instructions so you can create a one-of-a-kind artwork (that could even be a unique holiday card for someone special).  

Dec. 4: Learn how to make a woven bead bracelet cuff—no needles needed!
