Snippet From the Nursing Home

Wanted to pass this onto everyone. One of my artists "oldies" commented to me the other day that she had lost interest in painting before she had to go into care but now looked forward to her Monday class with us as she was learning new skills. She felt she was controlling "light and shade" better in her paintings after the guidance she received. Therein lies a lesson for us all - never too old to learn.

Thanks Darron, I'll check on the links. I think we forget sometimes how creative the elderly can be.
