We are delighted to be running a small pilot project called Art with Heart exploring different artistic cultural styles with people who have dementia and memory loss.
The first Art with Heart session took place on Saturday 10th November at Agnes House in Wyggeston’s Hospital in Leicester.
The theme was Africa and they talked about Africa, looked at typical African design motifs and then had a go at copying or designing and painting their own. The group looked at bold colours and striking patterns and worked together to create a series of distinct designs of their own.
The session was led by Vicky, a very experienced artist and longstanding L4A volunteer and she was supported with the help of student volunteers Safooraa and Asra.
The theme for the next session is South America and we look forward to seeing the results.
