Over the last few months residents at Little Hayes care home have been enjoying Art sessions and collaborating together to create three beautiful watercolour paintings. Some of the residents have very limited dexterity so holding thin paint brushes and painting small detail can be challenging. Using chunky water colour pencils and specially designed water brush pens with better grip, water colour painting is easier and more accessible for all abilities.
We at Independent Arts and the care staff at Little Hayes were astonished at the level of detail in the work produced that we thought they must be seen and shown off! The home itself had a lot of wall space in one of the resident’s lounges which we thought would be the perfect location to exhibit the work permanently.
