Engaging in the creative process of art-making allows people with Parkinson’s to focus on their strengths and develop new techniques for managing symptoms. For some, it has enhanced their sense of communication, increased their self-expression and provided an opportunity for exploring a new interest, all while having the support of others who know what you’re going through. This group explores different art methods, such as digital drawing, videomaking, and prose through dictation. Adaptive tools and aids will be offered.
