For seniors who have worked hard all their lives just to make a living, retirement can open the door to a newfound creativity. Watercolor and acrylic painting as well as drawing and sketching are all high on the list of avenues for artistic expression, and making art in a group can be an enjoyable way to engage with others.
Classes can either be set up with a small number of residents in a big room to ensure social distancing, or can be delivered as a one-on-one. Online art tutorials can even be setup for residents to view and apply on their own, with staff circulating to help when needed. Nothing should inhibit enriching the lives of residents.
