‘I used to paint until I couldn’t live at home anymore. Now I can paint here!’ - Olive
‘I love having something else to do. When I first started I had never done anything arty in my life and thought I never would. It just shows you’re never too old to learn something new.’ – Silvia
‘Even though my eyesight is almost gone, Aderyn still finds a way to help me continue painting which I have enjoyed all my life.’ - Rosetta
‘I look forward to you coming every week.’ - Jane
‘I like pottery but think we should have life modelling too.’ – Bill
‘Sometimes I have a go and sometimes I just like to watch. Aderyn always encourages me to have a go and is always making helpful suggestions even though my work never looks like it should.’ – Fruin, Parkinson’s sufferer
‘The difference to our residents who attend the art sessions is remarkable. For some it has led to a new lease of life and is a highlight in their week.’ – Sharon, carer.
‘We really value the time Aderyn gives and the way the art sessions provide a focus point for the residents and a feeling of achievement. It’s very good.’ Ruth, Manager.
