VERO BEACH, Fla., April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Artistic expression provides opportunities to think, problem-solve, and explore new ideas at any age and experience level. This month, the residents of Watercrest Newnan Assisted Living and Memory Care celebrated their artistic journeys in partnership with the Pre-K4 students from Saint Mary Magdalene Catholic Church in Newnan, Georgia.
The joint art show presented the artwork from Mrs. Lindsay’s Pre-K4 Class and the original artwork created by residents at Watercrest Newnan. The preschool students read the book Little Cloud by Eric Carle and followed with their own interpretations of images in cloud painting. The lesson fostered language development, and incorporated literacy, as well as science and art. The children’s paintings were on display with the resident’s artwork as residents, staff and preschool families enjoyed the community art show on the 51st anniversary of Earth Day, April 24th, 2021.
At Watercrest Newnan, residents are exploring their creativity through Watercrest’s signature program, Artful Expressions. Designed with evidence-based research, the program invites residents to celebrate their originality and imagination through a series of interesting and unique classes and workshops, from photography and poetry, to art history and performing arts.
«Our spring art show was a great success and fantastic opportunity to partner with Saint Mary Magdalene Catholic Church to encourage creativity and engagement for both our residents and the youth in our community,» says Noel Fortner, Community Programming Director of Watercrest Newnan.
