Empower . Equip . Educate
To empower and enrich senior citizens' lives through art.
Senior citizens will learn the foundation of acrylic and watercolour painting. Throughout the process, they will acquire painting skills and build up the confidence to share these skills with their community to empower other senior citizens.
The programme encourages senior citizens to take on a more active lifestyle through either forming their own painting hobby groups with their ‘kakis’ (close friends) or organising their own informal painting sessions in the community.
Update (Aug 2019):
We're into the second part of our programme!
In this second stage, we'll be teaching the seniors skills of an intermediate level. Instead of completing one painting within a session, this time around they'll be completing a painting in two sessions - applying different techniques they've learnt and spending more time with the details.
