Complete Senior Workshop Packet

Having fun exercising your creativity is an integral part of a J Robinson Art workshop.  Art can be easy, relaxing, therapeutic and rewarding for any age or level of physical and mental wellness.

 

What is a J Robinson Art Senior Workshop?

A fun, creative and engaging experience...In as little as 45 mins to 1 hour we turn a normal day into a wonderfully exciting experience.  Every participant will be delighted and amazed at what they can accomplish in one session. It does not matter if they have ever painted before.   Without realizing it you open critical thinking and right brain creativity that are stimulating and therapeutic.  When painting seniors are actively exercising their minds in a pure healthy uninhibited way.  Creating art by its very nature has proven therapeutic elements.  We just help to make it interesting fun and easy with our step by step methods.

  • Our workshops consist of (all step by step)
  • Easy freehand paintings one area at a time
  • “Tact Art” peeling away a wonderful surprise at the end once the main body of the painting is completed, usually a simple background.
  • We do pop art allowing our participants to color with paint rendering a pop art image without all the hassles of Warhol…
  • Our abstracts provide a free-flowing experience of just having fun in random color painting designs
  • We do “Together and connected” where the group paints the same theme, yet each theme is different but connected.

In our senior workshops, we paint on a verity of different canvases, surfaces, and backgrounds.

We also make sure to incorporate holiday themes being respectful of everyone’s holiday practices.  We usually limit them to around, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Fourth of July, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Easter and St. Patrick’s Day and Grandparents Day.  Only when request we will provide both Hanukah and or Christmas related paintings as approved by that community’s activities coordinator.

We make sure to bring a variety of exciting easy to follow projects that always leave the session happy to have been involved.
