Life Drawing at Whitebeach

We were privileged to have a visit this week from 'Drawing Life'.

Drawing Life aims to bring life drawing classes to people living with dementia, and exhibit selected work in public galleries.

Residents who were believed to gain the most out of the experience, and who were keen to participate settled in to our quiet lounge where tables with all the drawing equipment was waiting for them.

The life model moved around the room creating lots of movement. 

Our residents were totally engaged in this activity for the full 60 minutes. It was both moving and enlightening to see how much enjoyment everyone gained from being involved with this activity.

We are very grateful to Drawing Life for involving us in their project. www.drawinglife.org

We look forward to seeing some of the pieces exhibited in the local art gallery, Jerwood.
