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.

Best practices to be discussed include: licensed contractors; payment by check or credit card, rather than cash; small initial payments to start the “job”; a written contract which describes the details of the job, the start and end date, and the terms and conditions of the payment”; the contractor pulls the permit from the building departments; and proof of insurance.

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.

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.

Lakewood Cultural Center and Missoula Children’s Theatre present “The Emperor’s New Clothes”

Lakewood Cultural Center and Missoula Children’s Theatre present “The Emperor’s New Clothes” at 1 and 3:30 p.m., Jan. 29 A nationally touring production performed by 50 local students. Watch the Emperor learn about true friendship on Saturday, Jan. 29, when the Missoula Children's Theatre and 50 local students present an original musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen classic “The Emperor’s New Clothes” at the Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 S. Allison Parkway. “Dress for success” is good advice that the Emperor takes whole-heartedly, wanting to impress new friends. But where to stop? When the clothes (and other people’s opinions) become more important than the people of the kingdom, trouble brews. To help their beloved Emperor find the way back to his heart, his true friends create an elaborate “birthday suit” for the Emperor to wear for his birthday parade celebration. The Emperor quickly and humbly learns that sometimes less is more! The Missoula Children’s Theatre, the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre for nearly 50 years, has fostered developmental life skills in more than a million children. Students in kindergarten through 12th grade will play all roles, including the Emperor, ManyPenny and the Money Council, and the royal scholars, jewelers, cobblers, hatters, tailors and silkworms. Students are also cast as assistant directors who aid in rehearsals and essential backstage responsibilities. Families are invited to attend “The Emperor’s New Clothes” at the Lakewood Cultural Center for performances at 1 and 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 29. Tickets are $12 and are available at 303-987-7845, Lakewood.org/LCCPresents or the Lakewood Cultural Center Box Office, 470 S. Allison Parkway (Wadsworth and West Alameda Avenue). The LCC Presents 2021-2022 season is generously supported by the SCFD, Colorado Creative Industries, National Endowment for the Arts, Sheraton Denver West and the Olive Garden at Belmar. ###

Free Continuing Education Webinar -

Includes one complimentary Continuing Education (CE) credit.To request speech-to-text captioning during this event, please contact us. As humans, we would like to think we have an infinite amount of time on this earth. However, the reality is, our time will eventually run out. For some this is a scary thought, while others find comfort in some version of an afterlife. Regardless of what people think about death, many individuals don’t feel comfortable talking about death, dying and grieving. While talking about death is not easy, end-of-life planning is vital to ensuring that an individual’s wishes are carried out at the end of their life. It is especially important to ensure that proper documentation is in order to ease the burden of decision-making on their loved ones. This webinar will provide information on how professionals can help to prepare older adults and their families for difficult conversations about death, dying and grieving. RSVP HERE
