ART CLASSES WITH NICOLA CORRIGAN

This online dementia art class includes sessions on painting and drawing favourite and memorable objects, flowers and nature. We use photo prompts and share resources for inspiration.

 

The service users and carers learn to use pencil and watercolour techniques to paint a favourite flower or a bunch of flowers. Learners also work with mixed media, creating collages of memorable and special places and share these on screen.

You will receive a free Art Pack with resources to use during the class*. Workshops are free to attend, however, we welcome donations (suggested donation of £5.00 per session), which will help us continue to deliver this programme and others like it.

 

*Please note that we are unable to send Art Packs to participants based outside of the United Kingdom.
