Paint-a-Picture Therapy

Artist Collette Schildkraut enhances the “Nancy’s Friends” program with Mneme Therapy. Mneme Therapy uses pleasurable activities such as singing, painting and storytelling to stimulate the brain. Turning a pizza box into a makeshift easel, Collette works with patients at their bedsides, guiding them step-by-step in the creation of beautiful acrylic paint compositions. Not only are the patients proud of the results but, by engaging in this type of therapy, they acquire mental, emotional and physical benefits.
