Here at Hallgarth Care Home, our art club always has a project on the go, and this summer it was ‘the world in our hands’, which entailed recycling old materials to create artwork.
Art club members collected black, green and blue paper and other materials such as sweet papers, magazine clippings, cards and envelopes in to be used to create a collage of the world. Everyone was extremely resourceful and gathered a large amount of materials, so we had more than enough to create the collage!
Everyone got very into the project and was very keen to give it a go. One of our residents, Monica, even got her family involved, saying “we came up with lots of different materials to be used in the making of our collage. Even my great grandchildren helped, I really enjoy being involved in art club, and being able to help and have a try at new things.”
