On-site Adult Programs

Use art and guided meditation to connect to the moment and create a deeper understanding of artworks with our expanded series of mindfulness classes. Take a little extra time to look, listen and relax your mind with our teams of art educators and mindfulness guides. Each session, we will focus on one work of art in the Museum and blend guided mindfulness practice with a deeper reflection of an individual artwork.
12–12: 45 pm on the fourth Thursday of each month
Free for Members, included with general admission

Arts Engagement Program

The Arts Engagement Program (AEP) connects adults living with Alzheimer's disease and mild to moderate dementia to the benefits of the visual arts alongside their care partners. Research suggests that involvement in arts and cultural activities contributes to overall quality of life by offering meaningful opportunities for companionship, social engagement, and community participation.

At Phoenix Art Museum, we value the opportunity to spend time together exploring and making art. AEP workshops are interactive and encourage participants to engage with the creative process and share personal stories in a welcoming, safe, and fun environment. 

AEP sessions are offered during the Fall and Spring. Groups meet every other week for 16 weeks (eight meetings total). Participants spend each two-hour workshop with a group of other caregivers and partners, alternating between studio visits and gallery conversations.

The registration fee for AEP is $50.00 total per participant group (one-time payment). Space is limited and registration is required.

The Arts Engagement Program is generously supported in honor of the caregivers who support their partners with love, respect, patience, and laughter and make a difference every day, and by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona.

To learn more or register, please email the Education Department at Education@phxart.org or call us at (602) 307-2016.
