Sept. 2016 Testimonial from INOVA Loudoun Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Activity Department

img_1724“Art Together has provided the residents at INOVA Loudoun Nursing and Rehabilitation Center an opportunity to discover the impossible. Through their collaborative art programs they have brought about creativity, restoration and the preservation of one’s self for those suffering with cognitive impairment. It has inspired our residents with limited speech to use paint to communicate. With special techniques, unusual tools and the touch of one extraordinary hand, residents have been able to bring their imagination to life. It has honored life, fostered dignity and validated self-worth. Our residents have shared beauty with others because of it.“

Client Testimonial

Ken at work“I am so happy that my husband Ken, who is 95 years old, is able to reap the benefits of learning how to paint. I love watching him in the process of painting. He is as focused as anyone could ever be. It is a magical experience to see someone who has never done artistic work of this sort create a painting that we are both so proud of!”  –Joanie Walker, June 2014
