Our Journey

Art with nature has been inspired by our work with families spanning up to four generations in our family workshops. Witnessing faces light up, creativity flourish, and a profound sense of peace and connection, it became clear that we needed to expand our services to reach more people. With great excitement, we are now extending our offerings to care homes, bringing the therapeutic and joyful experience of nature-based art to even more individuals. Join us in this journey of creativity and connection, and watch as we transform lives, one art piece at a time.

Benefits of Art with Nature in Care Homes

 

1. Mental Health and Wellbeing: Engaging in creative activities can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. Nature-based art can provide a calming effect, helping residents feel more relaxed and peaceful.

 

2. Cognitive Stimulation: Creating art can stimulate cognitive functions, enhancing memory, attention, and problem-solving skills. This is particularly beneficial for residents with dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

 

3. Physical Health: Handling natural materials and participating in art-making can improve fine motor skills and coordination. It's a gentle form of physical activity that can be adapted to different ability levels.

 

4. Social Interaction: Art projects can be done in groups, encouraging social interaction and reducing feelings of loneliness and isolation. It fosters a sense of community and belonging.

 

5. Connection with Nature: Bringing elements of nature into care homes can help residents feel more connected to the outside world. It can evoke positive memories and feelings associated with nature.
