On Feb. 26, a news crew from Channel 6 (ABC) filmed a “Creative Clay” workshop at Pine Run Health Center taught by Kris Sinisi, ceramics and visual arts instructor at the Conservatory of the Arts in Doylestown.

The video is slated to air on a future segment of “The Art of Aging,” a new weekly show hosted by Lisa Thomas-Laury at noon on Thursdays and repeated at 7 a.m. on Saturdays. Viewers of the program will get a vivid look at memory impaired patients ably using their hands to explore form and using tools to create texture in “sun tiles.” The clay works will be fired, and then glazed by these amateur artisans, before being displayed in the gallery at
Pine Run.

Creative pursuits in art, music and gardening are often a highlight in the day for patients living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia at The Garden, the 40-bed personal care neighborhood located atop the Pine Run Health Center on Ferry Road in Doylestown Township.
