My Story Behind ATAS

From an early age, art was an important aspect of my life because both of my grandmas were artists. Our relationship was strengthened from our love of art and the creative process. However in 2009, my grandma was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and over the years she has lost the ability to speak, talk, and eat on her own. As I grew older, I did research to try to understand what Alzheimer’s was and what I could do to help my grandma. I stumbled upon art therapy and its success with Alzheimer’s sufferers who were once artists.

For me, it was too late. My grandma had already lost the physical ability to participate in art therapy. So, I created ATAS in hopes of spreading awareness of art therapy and to support Alzheimer’s sufferers by utilizing something that had been such an important part of my grandma’s life: art. Hopefully, the art community that my grandma had once been a part of can unite to support her and improve the quality of life for sufferers.
