Research has shown that seniors participating in creative expression and art experience better physical health, decreased feelings of loneliness and improved happiness. Picking up a paint brush, knitting needles, or even just some paper and a pencil can make a remarkable difference to our resident’s wellbeing.

So when our residents asked if we could organise an in-village painting class, we were all too happy to oblige.

Our team found an online painting class that we could all easily follow. We invited residents to participate and found several were happy to give painting a go, whilst others were a little hesitant to give it a try.

The best thing about following an online tutorial was that we could pause the video when needed so the experience wasn’t rushed.

We all had a wonderful time and the residents produced some amazing works of art. They said they loved it so much that they can’t wait for the next session.
