Taster Session Thursday 19th May 2022
Buckingham Care Home - Penistone
We are delighted to be able to support community activities for art for wellness with the "Create in the Community" scheme.
Invited to deliver a taster session at the local residential home in Penistone for residents to have the opportunity to be creative in a safe space.
The first session looking at simple colouring using pens and pencils on specially designed colouring pictures.
The emphasis being adding colour to paper, in their own way, in their own style. A chance to relax and enjoy the beauty of colouring.

Feedback from residents
"Mum and dad used to say beautiful drawing to me"
"Like using colours that match"
"Using two colours blended"
"I like my colours to work together"
"A little bit of what you fancy does you good"
"I enjoyed it today"
"When I saw you had all the blue colours I was very happy"
"It was a pleasure to see how the residents took delight and joy from colouring, engaging in conversations and giving them support and encouragement.
The final pictures are absolutely beautiful each in their own way and show the diverse styles from abstract, colour combination, mixing colours.
Thank you to Rob wellbeing coordinator at Buckingham Care Home for inviting me to share a taster for art for wellness in the community."
