The Art Without Boundaries Association

Our Mission

We are a Professional Association with the mission to
improve the quality of life for individuals with Autism,
Alzheimer's disease and other related disorders of
the brain by promoting MnemeTherapy®
To accomplish that, we recruit, train and
certify artists to become MnemeTherapists.
Membership in AWBA is required to practice
MnemeTherapy®

What is MnemeTherapy®?

MnemeTherapy® uses everyday pleasures such as
singing, movement, painting and story telling in a
unique combination to stimulate dramatic
changes in the brain. Although our goal is
to provide a rewarding experience,
documented testimonies show significant
improvement in some clients in verbal
skills, mobility, combativeness, spatial
acuity, understanding instructions
plus much more!

"I can’t praise the Kasey Watson and Art Without Boundaries program enough. The
result of the program for our residents has been amazing!
We've enjoyed surprisingly beautiful art, residents that smiled and responded during the
session, were more alert and tranquil after the session and seemed much more content
with the remaining part of the hour and sometimes even the rest of the day after the
session.I would highly recommend the program."

We're a Virtual Professional Association:
We have no office space, paid staff and we operate without fund raising.
We recruit, communicate, do continuing education and share ideas via the
Internet: on Facebook, through conference calls and recorded interviews.  
Applicants pay a membership fee and receive  training, certification and
continuing education.
Want more info on training? Click here!

The curriculum is self directed with a Mentor. Mentors go to
the student's location for Certification week, so the student learns how
to network locally. Members open their own private practice and pay
dues to the Association. The good news?  Membership fee and dues
are tax deductible.
Want to see if there's a MT in your area?

Because we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization,
Members can fund raise and
100% of the donations
are returned to their community to provide MT services.

    "MnemeTherapy is one of the most astonishing and hopeful therapies
    I’ve seen! I am in awe of what our MnemeTherapist is able to
    accomplish during a 30 minute session."  School Director, Texas

    "The self-esteem alone that
    his program brings is amazing!
    You can see the glow and
    smiles on the faces of the
    Residents as they hold up
    their finished product...they
    just beam."  Admissions
    Coordinator, FL

"(My son) began working with Mary a year ago and he has made outstanding strides since that time. (He) has
increased his vocabulary, attention, and focus. Before beginning MnemeTherapy with Mary, (he) rarely spoke
in sentences and did not have spontaneous speech. Anthony... now forms sentences on his own and has
begun to have spontaneous speech w/out prompts!!! Mary and the MnemeTherapy program are AMAZING.
From parent of student of Mary Jussel, CMT, Boise, ID

    "We strive everyday to bring new and innovative activities to our Residents.I have
    trouble finding the words to describe what the Art Without Boundaries™ program has
    brought to our facility. This program boosts cognition, self-worth and brings a sense
    of accomplishment to our Residents. They are getting a great moment in time, having
    fun (yet working hard) and succeeding in a finished product they can be proud of.
    Although there are so many things our Residents can no longer do, MnemeTherapy
    is something they CAN do and provides a sense of pride and self-esteem"

    From Larry Homan,
    Master MnemeTherapist, serving Coon
    Rapids, MN

    "My client, Kathy Ulrich, gave me
    permission to share her picture and
    brief story. Kathy called me a few
    months ago after hearing about
    MnemeTherapy from a friend who also
    provided her with a brochure. Kathy had
    a stroke two years ago and has been in
    a wheel chair since then. She has very
    limited use of the right side or her body.
    She said she has been depressed and
    felt like she couldn't do anything. During
    our first session together, Kathy began
    to cry. When I asked her what was
    wrong, she said she was crying tears of
    joy, because she could finally do
    something worthwhile. Yesterday, I
    worked with her again. She had
    received some art supplies from her
    sister including brushes, paints and
    stretched canvases. She asked if we
    could use the supplies and I said
    'Absolutley!' So she chose a picture
    from the inspiration book and painted it
    on the canvas, which she titled "Cottage
    Garden". As we were talking after she
    finished, she said this was her favorite
    one, so far. She also said 'This is the
    best two hours of my month!'
    Feeling humbled and blessed to be
    doing what I do."
Cottage Garden by Kathy Ulrich

    "This is amazing!" I will forever be grateful for what you do with
    and FOR my residents. They have such pride and
    accomplishment when they finish their paintings and see them
    framed and displayed. Thank you!!" Erica Elaine, AD IN
