Hi Darlene
Thanks. Love that idea. A lot of the residents were previously artist or enjoyed art and now they seem to have lost confidence in drawing or painting.
And thankyou Susan for the feedback.

Hi there
I am part of the Leisure and lifestyle team at our age care facility.
One of my passions is to build up the existing Art program we currently have. The art session only runs for 45 mins.
The residents really enjoy colouring which is wonderful and will continue to provide this for those that want to do it. I'm at a point where I don't know where to begin introducing more than colouring. We have done a little paint work like printing, hand painting and stick figure drawing and recently made pompom chicks which they really enjoyed but it's just here and there. I'm open to any suggestions on how to build a really great program that will interest the residents and give them confidence that they can draw, paint etc but also be respectful that they are adults and not make it too babyish. Looking forward in hearing back from you.
Kind regards
