Event is FREE but RSVP is required,please call 239-776-7353 to reserveyour seat / lunch today! *Lunch will be provided by Oasis Senior Advisors Did you that on average one in 100 people over the age of 60 in the US will be diagnosed each year with Parkinson’s Disease? This equates to an estimated one million people in the US living with this disease today. The exact cause of Parkinson’s disease is not known, but experts suspect it may be a combination of genetic and environmental factors, as well as age. Parkinson’s disease is not easily diagnosed and can sometimes take years to be accurately identified. Symptoms and progression vary from person to person, and unfortunately, there is no cure. But…hope does exist! There are many pro-active steps you can take to aid in the progression of Parkinson’s Disease so that you or your loved one can age with dignity.Join SBB University and our panel of experts as we discuss the resources available to Parkinsonians in SWFL. Knowledge is power... educate yourself todayfor the resources you or someone you love mayneed tomorrow! *Inside the Youth Development Center

Drawing & Creative Flow: An Art Workshop

Drawing & Creative Flow If your inner child has been wanting to create art, learning to draw is a great place to start. Nearly every child loves to draw, but many of us get socialized out of it around the time we learn to read. That timing is no accident; our culture emphasizes left-brain thinking, which deals with symbols, language and time. When we dwell constantly in the left brain, it's very difficult to access the right brain, and consequently, to transition into that blissful state called "flow" - that timeless, wordless state that makes you feel like you're on vacation. Learning to draw and access the right side of the brain gives us access to flow. It's both joyous and opens the gates to many other forms of art. In this class, Nicolette Toussaint will teach basic drawing techniques by having participants sketch with soft pencils and colored pencils. You will learn about light and shadow and about achieving a full tonal range. In addition, you will learn some helpful techniques for getting that harsh inner critic to shut up. Class 1 - Darks and lights, shape and shadow using black artist's pencils Class 2 - Spatial orientation, drawing upside down, beginning perspective Class 3 - Gestural drawing, line quality, sketching Class 4 - Still life with colored pencils Materials provided; class size limited and registration is required. Please contact Cathy at cclick@basaltlibrary.org to sign up.

Optimizing Brain Health for A Strong and Happy Start to 2022

The holidays are over, your life is back to normal, but what are mom and dad doing to stay engaged and keep their brain healthy? Isolation, loneliness, and post-holiday blues can harm short-term and long-term brain health.  A study by the health insurer Cigna found that loneliness has the same impact on mortality as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, making it even more dangerous than obesity. Loneliness increases the risk of heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, depression, and even premature death. The results of a 10- year study published in the Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences found that loneliness increases the risk of dementia by a startling 40 percent.

Drawing & Creative Flow: An Art Workshop

Drawing & Creative Flow If your inner child has been wanting to create art, learning to draw is a great place to start. Nearly every child loves to draw, but many of us get socialized out of it around the time we learn to read. That timing is no accident; our culture emphasizes left-brain thinking, which deals with symbols, language and time. When we dwell constantly in the left brain, it's very difficult to access the right brain, and consequently, to transition into that blissful state called "flow" - that timeless, wordless state that makes you feel like you're on vacation. Learning to draw and access the right side of the brain gives us access to flow. It's both joyous and opens the gates to many other forms of art. In this class, Nicolette Toussaint will teach basic drawing techniques by having participants sketch with soft pencils and colored pencils. You will learn about light and shadow and about achieving a full tonal range. In addition, you will learn some helpful techniques for getting that harsh inner critic to shut up. Class 1 - Darks and lights, shape and shadow using black artist's pencils Class 2 - Spatial orientation, drawing upside down, beginning perspective Class 3 - Gestural drawing, line quality, sketching Class 4 - Still life with colored pencils Materials provided; class size limited and registration is required. Please contact Cathy at cclick@basaltlibrary.org to sign up.

Improv for Caregivers

Fourth Tuesdays of the month 12:30-2pm Register Here with a Pay What You Want Donation  **Are you interested in being a lobby sponsor with a table to pass out resources at our monthly caregiver events?  Email me at andrea@stompinggroundcomedy.org with Subject: Lobby Sponsor**                                        Wanna know more about Improv for Caregivers?  At Improv for Caregivers, we know you want an easygoing relationship with your loved one. Caregiving for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia is a heavy burden with daily responsibilities that can feel overwhelming, depleting, and unappreciated. You need support in navigating these difficult circumstances, but it’s hard to find anything that really makes a difference. That’s why we started Improv for Caregivers, a workshop that blends therapeutic techniques and improvisational comedy activities to help caregivers cultivate ease, joy, and flexibility in their relationships and feel more hopeful. In our interactive workshops, you’ll have fun developing a skill set that helps you communicate in new ways, understand your loved one’s changing perspective, diffuse challenging behavior, and cope with the stress of it all. When you learn improv skills for caregiving, you’ll worry less, laugh more, and find joy in the everyday with your loved ones.
