Meet me at the Beehive - Expressive Paint Workshop recommended for 70+
Jonathan Hayter has a wealth of experience of working in schools for over 25 years guiding young people through a creative process to create exciting shadow puppets.
In 2016 he began to bring this knowledge and approach to working with the elderly by working across a wide range of memory cafes in both Devon and Cornwall. The results of this work have been outstanding and enthusiastically received. Working mainly with those with memory issues, Jonathan has been able to lead individuals to pick up a paint brush and paint when they have never done so throughout their lives!
Jonathan’s person-centred approach allows each individual, regardless of ability, to find their expressive potential through a shared memory, or something unique to the moment and bring it alive in colour and form.
The workshop follows a simple direct approach encouraging group interaction too. Lasting anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour the session follows the friendly gentle steps outlined by Jonathan’s sense of fun.
The result is a unique frieze work that can be hung or displayed alongside other pictures in your chosen hall or gallery.
