Hi guys, I am hoping for some ideas... in my nursing home we are starting an art group. Has anyone have any ideas... most of my residents are high care, they can't do anything too complicated. I appreciate any feed back. Thanks.

I found paintings on google that I could easily draw, such as birds and flowers and sketched it on to art paper and let the residents paint it. I printed off the picture on google and laid it beside their paper so they could see what to paint what color. Worked well even with lower functioning residents

How about active minds aqua draw cards. Pack of 5 for about £15. They're reusable and all you need is water and a paint brush.

"Hospital Art" is free in Australia they supply to all Nursing Homes, you can pick up canvas, easels, paints for no cost.
Get information off internet.
Residents feel so important painting on a canvas, sitting on a easel.
