On Monday, June 19, another session of Millie’s Painting Pals was loved by all who attended. Led by Poet’s Walk Round Rock resident Millie Savage, Millie is an excellent painter who now has end stage dementia. But when Millie is painting, she is able to converse about the painting and life.
Millie guided her fellow residents in painting one of her old paintings. She told everyone what to paint, how to paint it, how to shade it, why they’re painting as they are and more. If she stumbled, the staff was there to help her articulate what she’s trying to say as well as walk through the class and make sure everyone was following along. Of course, this painting class was accompanied by a glass of wine for everyone!
Check out the coverage of this class by Michael Perchick from KVUE, abc! You can see more photos of this event and more on our Facebook page.
