April – September 2022
‘A Summer of Colour’
This project developed from concern about the long-term impact of the inactivity and social isolation experienced by care home residents during the pandemic. With support from Community Chest funding, in April 2022 I commenced a sociable and playful, creative adventure with willing participants from Meadowbrook nursing home. During this journey the residents and I discovered a shared love of nature, and this became a theme for our artmaking. The subsequent exhibition contained works which celebrated the joyous colours, textures, and moments of summertime.
“I want to thank you again for the time you have spent and brilliant work you have done with the residents. It has been a real pleasure. Kind regards Laura”. Meadowbrook’s Activity Coordinator
“Wonderful exhibition reflecting the work carried out, inspirational”. Val
