7:20am Saturday 28th September 2013 in Local
STOURPORT care home residents have had their artwork put in the spotlight at a gallery in Worcester.
The residents at Ravenhurst Residential Care Home got creative making mini oil paintings for the exhibition during workshops organised by the Movement gallery in Worcester.
The exhibition is called Creativity in Care and was funded by the Sanctuary Group, the parent company of Sanctuary Care which runs the care home.
Co-founder of the the Movement gallery Nina Coulson said: “We are really excited to be working in partnership with Sanctuary Group.
“The workshops we have hosted at the care homes have proved very popular and it has been really encouraging to see so many people getting involved and trying their hand at contemporary visual art.
“This exhibition was a fantastic opportunity for Sanctuary Care’s residents to showcase their work and demonstrates what can be achieved through art workshops.”
Residents from Cranham Residential Care Home in Worcester and Hastings Residential Care Home in Malvern also took part in the exhibition.
Sophie Atkinson, Sanctuary’s head of community investment and sustainability, said: “We are really pleased with how our support has helped make it possible for residents to get more involved in art.
“Our residents find art both enjoyable and therapeutic so they have relished the opportunity to participate in these exciting sessions and show their creative side.”
Movement is an artist-led gallery, located on platform two at Worcester Foregate Street Station. It will host another exhibition next Spring following further art workshops in care homes.
