I need your opinions please:
I am brand new as Activities Director for a Senior Day Center. Most of our clients (when they return) have pretty good cognitive abilities. Moderately functioning etc. I'm told they love to paint and with that in mind I want to order easels and canvas for them to paint on. Nothing larger than 8" or 10". Especially for those that are able to do this kind of art/craft. I want them to feel artistic and of course music to compliment the mood. Since our attendance is gong to be cut in half, I thought it would be a good time to try more creative ideas and grow with it. Any other suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated :) Thanks bunches in advance
