Opening Mind Through Art (OMA)

Opening Minds Through Art is a free 8 week art program for individuals with memory loss. No experience required. Artists with dementia are paired with volunteers (students, families, caregivers) who are trained to rely on imagination instead of memory and focus on remaining strengths instead of lost skills. Opening Minds Through Art (OMA) is an evidence based program that enables people with dementia to assume new roles as artists and teachers while leaving a legacy of beautiful artwork. The art projects are failure-free, and allows participants to show others the creative, self-expressive capacities of people with dementia. An exhibit highlighting the participants work is held at the end of the 8-week session. The program at Artists First is offered with the support of the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Missouri Chapter, and Maryville University.
