Thank you to the Perth and District Community Foundation (PDCF) for their generous grant towards offering our clients the opportunity to experience three different Art Therapy Programs.
The grant is set up so that our clients and staff will have the opportunity to experience three Art Therapy Programs. The staff will then take what they have learned and continue the therapy programs on the other three program days so that all of the clients get to experience the benefit of art therapy.
The program will run throughout the winter / spring season as this is a time that seniors can be vulnerable to feeling depressed and art therapy is known to help them with their sad moods.
Our Wednesday Clients had a lot of fun creating amazing pictures, using coloured sand. I must say they all look like masterpieces!!
We are really looking forward to building and painting bird houses next!!
Thank you to Julie McIntyre, Art Therapist and Donna Bourgeault, Expressive Arts Practitioner for their great programming.
