Our clients have been busy at the groups using their creative skills to produce great artwork.
At the Sandon, Chelmsford Oasis group, spring was in the air with a collection of colourful paintings of tulips and crocuses.
At the Bradwell, Braintree group the German artist Franz Marc, Born February 1880 inspired a painting session. Known for the intense mysticism of his animal paintings, Marc was an expressionist, well ahead of his time. We think our client’s paintings have done him proud with their versions of The Blue Horse, The Antelope and The Owl.
Creating artwork is so stimulating and enjoyable for our clients especially as part of an activity group. The Alzheimer’s Society website says “Many of us take great pleasure and satisfaction from creating pictures in various ways.
Someone who’s already painting, drawing, or taking photographs could continue enjoying this after a dementia diagnosis, though they may need to adapt how they do this at times.
A person with dementia who hasn’t done this for a while, or perhaps ever, might like to take it up again or try it as something new.”
If you or a loved one could benefit by joining one of our activity groups, please give us a call on 01245 363789 to arrange a free ‘Taster Day’.
