Today’s busy lifestyles leave people searching for time and space to engage with their creative interests! As a traveling arts enrichment company, ArtSong works with diverse communities and organizations by providing on-site creative learning programs.

ArtSong has been a fantastic partner with Gándara Center and our youth since 2011. ArtSong’s wonderful Arts Enrichment program has served as a very successful creative endeavor for children and teens in our residential group homes. They love the process of making art and enjoy a true sense of accomplishment by exhibiting their original art at our annual Youth Art Exhibit. ArtSong’s programs decreases stress and anxiety in these youth and provides an outlet for their creativity. It is incredibly gratifying for me to see how proud they are of their hard work at the exhibits every year.
I have had the pleasure working with Amy Porchelli for the past four years in many capacities. Amy has been providing art classes to the residents at Armbrook Village, a Retirement, Assisted and Alzheimer’s Care community. Amy has been amazing in her approach to the resident’s especially those with cognitive deficits. Amy can invoke the very emotions that Alzheimer’s residents need so they may be in touch with their feelings and their past. Amy uses such a fail free positive approach with all of our residents, and they have blossomed in so many ways.
Amy also teaches the ‘Memories in the Making “art program, a sanctioned program through the Alzheimer’s Association. Amy has taught the program to life enrichment staff from local assisted living and nursing home communities for the last four years. This one-day training has enabled thirty new staff every year to put the training they received from Amy into practice with their residents.
I can’t think of a more talented and compassionate person to work with both our residents and staff.
Viability has been partnering with ArtSong for over 3 years with extraordinary results. Over 50 individuals have participated in the art program and report overall satisfaction with all aspects.
Members have stated: “Amy helps us find our inner artist! Whether it is with paint or markers; we all have a gift!”, “It is amazing and beautiful” “ArtSong relaxes me”
“ArtSong helps me think through my problems while I participate.” The Viability artists work has been showcased at art exhibits, won awards and decorate numerous offices and homes. This program is invaluable to its participants.
