art by people
living with dementia
Picasso said it took him a lifetime to learn to paint like a child. Drawing Life has put this paradoxical statement to the test working with people living with dementia and other age-related issues. We have a brilliant selection of work on our Gallery page
. Drawing gives people the chance to lose themselves in calm concentration and say to the world, “I’m still here!”
Carers hold the key to bringing art and drawing to those they care for, as well as benefiting from the activity. We have created resources for carers to inspire them do what we do. We're building our Resources page to view videos of talented artists making drawings showing how easy it is to start a sketch, plus there will be scores of downloadable images for drawing and original line drawings colouring, and training videos featuring some of our artist tutors - coming soon.
