About Artful Expressions
Creative activities have been found to be of therapeutic value for people living with Parkinson’s disease. The benefits of group artistic activities include a non-verbal means of expression, improved fine motor skills and concentration, relaxation, stress reduction, group camaraderie and social interaction as well as a sense of accomplishment. Artful Expressions classes are designed specifically with PD in mind.
“When I am making art, I am not focused on my disease or its symptoms such as tremors or dyskinesia. I feel relaxed and peaceful when I am so focused on creating new images.” - Kris Krishnan from Art as Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease by Harriet Wadeson, PhD, ATR-BC, HLM, LCSW.
