A Word from our president

My Story Behind the ATAS Foundation

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 move, 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 my grandma, it was too late. My grandma had already lost the physical ability to participate in art therapy. So, I cofounded the ATAS Foundation 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. I believe that the art community that my grandma had once been a part of can unite to support her and so many more people whose lives have been affected by Alzheimer’s to improve the quality of life for sufferers everywhere.
