Residents at Bupa’s Arran View Care Home in Saltcoats have found themselves becoming ‘paid artists’ thanks to a successful art exhibition.
The exhibition of artwork created by residents raised nearly £150 which will be put towards the home’s activity fund.
The display attracted friends and family who came along to purchase the designs – and also show support to relatives who are resident at the home.
Jenny Trott, Activity Coordinator at Bupa’s Arran View Care Home, said: “We are delighted at the success of the art exhibition and to have raised £147 from the sale of the residents’ work is a great achievement.
“Many of the residents at the home are living with dementia and getting them involved in arts and crafts is a great way to stimulate their motor skills.
“It was also great to see the residents create their own artwork – at first many of the residents had doubts and didn’t think they could do it. So the pleasure in becoming ‘paid artists’ was a great added bonus.”
