We thought it was time for an art group update! We have some new recruits and some seriously talented residents. We spend time looking through inspirational books before the residents choose what they would like to draw. As you can see there is usually a flower theme or a landscape but we loved what one resident had done with the abstract circles. She used watercolour pencils which are great for all different abilities and easy to hold. These are then brushed with water to create a watercolour effect and the finished result is so pretty with all the colours. Art group is really loved by our arty residents they even turn up early to the lessons! And creativity is very important for stimulation. Some residents never had painted before coming to Coombe and it goes to show that life doesn’t stop in care!
