Paint brushes are out and aren’t getting put away any time soon! The monthly Sip and Paint workshop at Regis Kuluin is a huge hit with our residents and is led by our very own resident, Michael. Many members of the group have never held a paint brush before, yet Michael’s experience and patient nature mean all of our residents leave the workshop with a masterpiece of their own.
These sessions are the perfect setting for enhancing creativity and building relationships amongst fellow residents. Our residents cannot wait until their next lesson!
Art Therapy is a valuable way for residents to feel comfortable expressing their emotions through a creative avenue. It is another outlet that allows residents to show how they feel without using words, as it is a safe and welcoming environment. It is also a rewarding activity, allowing a sense of accomplishment and pride in their work; “it’s a safe space to try something new.” Art Therapy has been introduced in the Lifestyle Calendar across many Homes and has already seen positive effects among our residents.
