In the Painting with Parkinson’s class at the Northville Art House there is respect for each individual and an empathetic understanding of the path being traveled by both those with Parkinson’s and those who care for them.
Artist and Educational Therapist, Sasha Roberts-Levi brings the spirit that everyone is born creative and can learn to draw or paint or express their creativity to her instruction. If you want to learn how to paint with acrylics and you have Parkinson’s then this class is for you.
Sasha provides personalized instruction based on your skill level and creative goals. We will explore color theory and paint mixing and techniques that allow you to complete a painting in a few sessions. High-quality art materials are provided to create vibrant clarity of color.
Even if someone with Parkinson’s Disease has not picked up a paintbrush since grade school, art can help improve physical, psychological, and social functioning. Students with no or little prior drawing or painting experience are welcome.
Materials: A material list will be provided to new students by the instructor.
Registration: Registration is per class through Active.com. Currently class are held online via Zoom.
