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 (April 2020):
We're into the 3rd part of our programme!
In this 3rd 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 a week- applying different techniques they've learnt and spending more time with the details.
During the circuit breaker, we moved our sessions to WhatsApp video call chat in a bid to continue engaging our seniors and to create meaningful connections
We hope that you, too can reach out via video call to the elderly in your family or community and to make them feel less alone while we get through this trying period. Consider doing something together too, if possible, it could be cooking, exercising or whatever is readily available. Let's support one another and get through this together! ♥️
