Art Snack Summer Residencies are continuing fortnightly across the Central West. Last week in Blayney MPS Artist Facilitator Nyree Reynolds shared her joy of expression with paints.
Painting the sky in the session, the resients talked about how the sky appears much lighter near the horizon. The session was such a hit that both Nyree and the residents wanted to continue on painting well after the end of the session.
Across the 13 small rural hospitals that have opted into this program, aged care residents as well as day-care users and temporary hospital patients enjoy culturally engaged activities and stay connected.
