We are very lucky to have had Margaret a talented artist volunteer at Parklands and interact with our residents. Over the last few weeks she has taught or residents different techniques with watercolours and acrylics.
Residents who haven’t painted before, or not for a very long time, have come along and surprised themselves. Margaret was a real star as she spent a lot of time making sure each session was fulfilled to her best ability. She is now ready to teach her 4th art class and it’s a real treat as all the residents love to use their imagination.
It’s lovely to see that the residents are feeling confident enough to try new things. We even have two new members joining the art class after watching a few sessions.
A big thank you to Margaret!
