It has been my privilege to work with some friends who have dementia. I have devised a non threatening, relaxed activity of 'pass the pencil/brush' that results in colourful workt hat not only looks pleasing but is fun to do. I have also had the privilege of working with a lady who suffered a stroke and my daughter-in-law who is visually impaired.

PAREIDOLIA, in a nutshell, is the ability to see faces, or other things, where there isn't one.
"In his notebooks, Leonardo da Vinci wrote of pareidolia as a device for painters, writing "if you look at any walls spotted with various stains.... if you are about to invent some scene you will be able to see in it a resemblance to various different landscapes adorned with mountains, rivers, rocks, trees, plains, wide valleys and various groups of hills. You will also be able to see divers, combats and figures in quick movement, and strange expressions of faces, and outlandish costumes, and an infinite number of things which you can then reduce into separate and well conceived forms."
These imaginings, or seeings, with the aid of drawing, become my Gazoonkas
