Memory Lounge

Memory Lounge is a program for people living with mild to moderate stages of dementia-related illness and their care partners. It is an enjoyable, social outing that helps couples live in the moment as they engage in the arts.

Balancing Acts

Even at its most rewarding, caregiving can be a lonely job. Join others who spend their days and nights looking after young children, aging parents, and anyone in between as we learn from one another and build community through writing and workshopping true stories.

Club Creatives

In partnership with after-school youth organizations, high-quality art workshops, experiences, and excursions are offered to local clubs in order to enhance community youth skill development and provide career advancement opportunities.

Library Creatives

Expand your visual literacy through art workshops at the Scottsdale Public Libraries.

In this illuminating program, you will experience the sunset inside the James Turrell Skyspace Knight Rise at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA).
