Creative activities like art can offer a fun, relaxing opportunity for non-verbal expression, particularly valuable for people living with dementia.  Renowned local artist, Kendra Earls, hosts twice monthly art workshop creating art through different mediums like watercolour, acrylic or pastels. 

Due to COVID-19, ‘Art with Kendra’ is currently being held via Zoom.  She recommends Crayola Pastels (available in the children's section at People’s Pharmacy), Bristol Pad Paper and a Black Sharpie (both available from Stationary Store), although any drawing materials you have at home will enable creativity to flow.

 

Once we return to in person activities, Kendra hosts her art workshops at the Masterworks museum in the Botanical gardens.  Bring a picnic to enjoy afterwards as you tour the gallery and explore the Botanical Gardens on foot.
