Painting with Parkinson’s, July
Lucy Carrigy-Ryan Viola
Painting with Parkinson’s is recognised internationally as one of the most effective art therapy programs for people with Parkinson’s disease. It pairs musicians with painters in the serene settings of the National Botanic Gardens, and together they have formed a cohesive and powerful body of artwork. Painting with Parkinson’s has become a profoundly rewarding relationship between artists and musicians resulting in a positive impact on many people living with the disease. It has allowed participants to express themselves through art, in some cases for the first time. CSO musicians collaborate with Painting with Parkinson’s artists at regular sessions once a month throughout the year.
