Found via Alyson Stanfield's Art Biz Blog, Art Without Boundaries is looking for individuals willing to open AWB chapters by participating in a paid apprenticeship program. This organization's mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other related disorders by providing Mneme Therapy.
All is needed is your time and your heart. Artists will receive $60.00 per hour plus commissions. AWB provides grants to train and certify artists to become Mneme Therapists. They provide business opportunities for artists and entrepreneurs, particularly single mothers with children, by awarding grants for training and business start-up. They offer ways to partner with the community to hold fund raisers that honor the patient/artist and provide grants for on-going therapy services at no charge to the health care organization. (Since MnemeTherapy is not covered by Medicare, Health care organizations do not usually put therapy in their budget.)
The painting above is entitled Mediterranean Morning by Esther at the Boca Raton Adult Day Center.
