Art Therapy With Older Adults
Portrait Of Pleasure EndeavorsStreaming Video - 2013
Produced as part of a hospital art program in 1986 and presented here in concise excerpts, this video puts viewers alongside elderly patients as they make paintings and discuss their creative experiences. Art therapists are shown helping the hospital residents maximize their abilities and manipulate their materials, with creative autonomy, expressive freedom, and sheer enjoyment for each patient as the ultimate goals. Program administrators discuss the importance of helping the elderly gain access to art experiences, while participants reflect on what they've achieved and how much they look forward to art-making as part of their daily activities.
