Free Art Session

Good Samaritan Society - Boise Village is offering free Art Without Boundaries sessions to individuals with motor or cognitive challenges. Art Without Boundaries is a whole-brain therapy that uses music, movement, storytelling and painting in a unique combination to improve and restore verbal skills, mobility and comprehension.

"Residents are thrilled with their success! The artwork they complete usually far exceeds their expectations of their own abilities," said Sherri Ellis, activities and volunteer director at Boise Village.

This program has been used successfully for individuals who have Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, stroke, autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity disorder.

"Participants' self-worth, outlook and sense of purpose appear to improve. I also see that their range of motion, nimbleness and ability to follow instructions improves," said Mary Jussel, a certified Art Without Boundaries instructor.
